No turning back


we’re in the same boat

you and I– chasing the same mirage

in the desert of our lives that is

filled with life that we never see


we’re on the same road

you and I– looking at the crossroads

dreaming of the roads not taken

when the yearning began to burn


we’re on the same journey

you and I– we’re trying to move on

but our illusions spin us around

wanting to know the reason why


we are travellers and seekers

a tossing and turning of the restless

that which we have lost we cannot retrieve

because it will never ever be quite the same.
