Mistakes

B. J. Carper

Today I looked around
And found my World empty
Alone with my thoughts
I know the reason why

No Shining lights
To brighten my nights
Alone by myself
I pondered the reason why

Today I bared my soul
And listed the mistakes
Alone, and on my own
I know the reason why

No Friends to share
To give comfort, not there
Alone in my choices
I pondered the reason why

Today I spoke the truth
And offered my apologies
Alone I sit
I know the reason why

For the mistakes
Against those that meant the most
Alone I shall stay
I pondered the reason why
