I know of a place down the road,
At the town's edge is where I go,
When I need to lighten my load.

Before my head starts to implode,
A long measured walk I take slow,
I know of a place down the road,

There are no secret, hidden codes,
But I guess itís a riddle though,
When I need to lighten my load.

It is a place where no one goes,
My special place I feel a glow,
I know of a place down the road,

When I'm there I feel calmness flow,
Time slows down, my life it I owe,
When I need to lighten my load.

When troubles start bothering me,
And life seems a nightmarish show,
I know of a place down the road,
When I need to lighten my load.

Ahhh . . . You flatter me, Alana, with your thoughts(keep doing it!). In these my older years I am more into finding piece rather than ratting the road like I did back in tha day. I have found that piece more often than not. Thank you very much for reading and commenting on my poetry.

I'll bet down at the end of that road is a swamp, huh, Jerry? Nice one. ~L

I'm betting you would be right, Lori, a  swamp it is. Thank you.
