When you finally scaled the wall
Thinking you had heard the siren singing
What you really heard was a broken bird
Making out like it's a dove
When you stole the soldier's car
Everybody knew what you were thinking
Ivory towers and lover's flowers
But no one thought you were a fool
You never stopped to notice all
The stolen clothes stacked in the hall
From the others who scaled the wall just to
Find themselves run off the road

When you showed up at the farm
Visions of the summer flying past you
The foxes had torn up
The mother and her pups
And the well was full of flies
When you walked down to the pond
Searching for the lover guiding you
It had been filled in with rusty nails and then
You finally knew that you were lost

No one thought you were a fool
Even though everyone knew
What you wrote was the same
Just a different name
Of those who escaped before you.

    General CommentA great story about finding yourself. There's no way of escaping the influence of society and everything that comes with it. It's hard to find happiness but it's possible, one just need to on a journey called life to get a better perspective . :)

    General CommentLast verse:

    No one thought you were a fool,
    Even though everyone knew
    What you wrote was the same,
    Just a different name
    Of those who escaped before you.
