No Daisy

I’ve spun the wheel twice today

No daisy for you was all it relayed

I’ve failed at everything I’ve tried

I’ve loved and lost, laughed and cried

Now all I need is one stoke of luck

I guess it’s time to chamber up…

 

Don’t look for me to go up or down

I didn’t buy tickets for either town

I’m looking for a road between those lands

A home, a haven…not bad or nearly so grand

I’m sure its there…it just has to be…

‘Cause I know there’s got to be other people like me…

Touching yet sad. Your hopelessness was well versed. Short and effective for you got the feeling across.
