Lonesome Place

I got to leave this town.
It’s a lonesome place.
Got to leave this town cause
It’s a lonesome place.
A po’, po’ boy can’t
Find a friendly face.

Goin’ down to de river
Flowin’ deep an’ slow.
Goin’ down to de river
Deep an’ slow-
Cause there ain’t no worries
Where de waters go.

I’m weary, weary,
Weary, as I can be.
Weary, weary,
Weary as can be.
This life’s so weary,
‘S’ bout to overcome me.

by Langston Hughes

Although I should read and comment more frequently - on the works of others on the board I rarely do - However I did read “I only hope I can help” and totally enjoyed it. Pax Vobiscum Steve
I am sure it is plenty. Such concern and compassion. Wonderful
