One way ticket

I got a ticket to ride.

One way trip. But I lied.

Second trip. And I tried.

To be good. But still died.

This one is not round trip.

Not giving anyone any lip.

Just sit back and let it rip.

Breathe deep. Take a sip.

Each trip is short.

I’m happy to report.

This time there will be no retort.

No pop of crack. No cocaine snort.

Carpe Diem. Every damn day!

I learned my lesson. This I say,

Nothing. Yes nothing. Stands in my way,

I spread peace and love so that I may,

Only leave you with a smile.

For I will only stay a short while.

And if your number I dial,

Know that together we walk the mile.

Peace and love laurelin
