My Dawn

Richard GuzmanMay 8, 2013

Stuck between two roads

One of light

One of dark

I must make a choice with heavy heart

What to do

Should I move?

Can’t I stay?


A choice

They ask and it must be clear

Both roads call

Each in one ear

But sick of both

I finally scream


Just let me be

And walk away

For now I’m strong

I’ll walk my path

My road to dawn.
