How I Got Here, & Where I Am Going – A Poem by Rhett Schroers

How I Got Here, & Where I Am Going

Author: Rhett Schroers

~

She asked me how I got here

And I replied with a story

That I was long gone

Before you had known me

 ~

I had plans with an angel

But I left her in a forest

Chased the smoke

And turned back to see

My plans burned downed to ashes

 ~

Remnants of the angel’s essence

Remind me of my idiocy

And looking back in time

Is staring into your eyes

A deep ocean so blue

With depths unknown

 ~

And it is easier to get lost

Than it is to be found

In this crazy mad world

Or so I used to think

But now I am finding out

That I want to stand in your glow

And until that day has past

You will find me on a ship

Course set for the sapphire seas

 ~

She asked me how I got here

And I replied with a story

That I was long gone

Before you had known me

 ~

She asked me how I got here

And I replied that I

Am not quite sure

But if I am sure of anything

It is that I will find

My way to you, my golden rose
