NaPoWriMo2014 #9 ~ The Joke's On Me

The Joke's On Me

It should've been a stepping stone
a foundation
a leg up
a beginning
not quicksand

Isn't that what home should be
a sturdy boat on an ocean
a safe world, child
'til you float down your own river, man
not a whirlpool

"Follow me
stay with me"

and I did
traveled through time
without moving a minute

Life's pulled a fast one
on this slow one
