Stranded On A Lone Highway

Miles and miles of anonymity,
Waiting to greet you.
Far behind left is the city,
Which you really knew.

Green woods make you feel lost,
Charm of the busy city street,
Soon you have realized its cost.
Miles ahead, its just a dead-end you meet.

A carefree thought, a turn you missed,
Causes you to speed away from life.
It's for those past moments of time you wished,
You should have listened to your wise wife.

Stranded on lone highway,
Good times don't always last.
There is no eternal star to show you the way,
The highway just reflects your past.

Life is short,
so take care of your turns...
