Away and Back

Away and back, back and away,
just like home, I'd like to stay,
but duty calls, I have not time
to rest a while and dwell on rhyme,
though heart is screaming to retire
and just do things that light my fire.

But duty always wins the day
not only in my need for pay,
but also in a raging hurt
that makes me with a passion flirt
to change the things that I see wrong
so everyone can get along.

Can one alone change destiny
and set a path that sets some free?
Is it the solitary flame
that's needed to progress  the game?
Back and away, away and back
I'd love to stay, but time I lack...
