I Need a Tour Guide

TRAVEL ADVISORY

Why didn’t you stop me
Before I came here?
Warn me before I
Joined the crowd?
Some claim to love life
For life itself, the living.
Couldn’t you have dropped me
In their neighborhood?
At least I could have asked
For directions. I still
Haven’t found my home.
Why didn’t you stop me
Before I came here?
Issue a travel advisory?
The only way out is death.
I travel alone with no map,
Not speaking the language
Of life and love and joy.
Why didn’t you stop me?
