Easy Street




It would have been easy
To let despair steal
The rest of the dream not taken
It’s hard sometimes
To know what is real
And where we are sadly mistaken

It would have been easy
To let doubt creep in
Subtle as night on the roses
And miss the sound
Of a door opening
As another behind us closes

It would have been easy
To let defeat fall
Not daring to challenge its candor
It would have been easy
To do nothing at all
But look back and forever wonder...
