HOW DID I GET HERE

How did I get here

why did I choose this place

something brought me here

destiny perhaps

 

I watch people pass the door

as I sit here beer in hand

alone what else were you expecting

pretty girls pass the door

some look in

mostly walk by

 

Boys first then older men

enter go to the bar

I turn and quickly look

but keep myself to myself

 

One beer, two, three

I’ve lost count

I tear up the bottle labels

tiny pieces scattered on the table

 

The rough barman walks to my table

“finished wanna another one” he asks

“no thanks” I said

he huffs and walks away

 

Time for me to exit

I am on the street

the long and lonely street

but I am used to being alone

 

Sometimes just a little love would be nice

for an hour or even the whole night through

people pass me but no one looks

all too busily rushing by

loud voices shout out

but none call to me

 

How did I get here

destiny perhaps

but I’m here

and if I don’t make it work out

I’ll move on

Some great music, yet sad times.  Those that fought and Died deserved better, they deserve Respect.
