WARRIOR ONCE… HOMELESS NOW

Just an old soldier
running from an old war
Racing until I can run no more
Racing toward a unknown chore
………… Passing time
Passing time… until I am no more

I surface to the sun
The race is lost and nearly done
faint and devoid of fight
living in the dust of twilight
………… Passing time
Passing time… until I am no more

Living unseen in the shadows
forsaking hope of tomorrows
A coming of age has found all matters naught
just existing today in the snares of others caught
…………… Passing time
Passing time… until I am no more
