THE BOOK OF COUNTED SORROWS

On the road that I've taken,
one day, walking, I awaken,
amazed to see where I have come,
where I'm going, where I'm from.

This is not the path I thought.
This is not the place I sought.
This is not the dream I bought,
just a fever of fate I've caught.

I'll change highways in a while,
at the crossroads, one more mile.
My path is lit by my own fire.
I'm going only where I desire.

On the road that I have taken,
one day, walking, I awaken.
One day, walking, I awaken,
on the road that I have taken.

Dean Koontz

Yup, Koontz is the man. Never known anyone else with such literary... fluidity, if you will.

This is brilliant. Didn't know he wrote poetry though. Clearly a man of varied talents.

Yup, he's brilliant. He compiled some of his random poetry into a book he titled - would you know it - The Book of Counted Sorrows.
