Those summer days have long since passed
Those days when I was young
And free of ties
And cares and worries of this world.

In that summer I had a plan
Though roughly sketched
And adrift in the aloofness of youth,
It was clear to me.

My life since then,
Two decades now,
Has rambled and sauntered
And led me far from home.

Where has your plan led you?
Has it fallen by that wayside
Rubbing shoulders and keeping company
With the isolation that life can sometimes brings?

Where has your journey brought you?
Where have your hopes been parked?
Where have your dreams been sold?
Or is it as you always thought it would be?
