Yay, a nice short one.

He was glad as hell
And he wasn't gonna take it anymore.
A pleasant home with
A pearly doormat enamel,
Wide eyed welcoming windows stare
But amiable as that building was
It led him nowhere.

How many roads must a man walk down,
Before he realizes he's the pavement?
This white dove sailed no seas,
Just toiled in its torment.

i didn't connect with this at all, until ...
How many roads must a man walk down,
Before he realizes he's the pavement?

i like that a ton.
the meaning/message is solid and clever.
stealing the first line then twisting it in the second is just friggin lovely.
but sonically/rhytmically it's not all that satisfying.
i think he realizes he's is the stuttery part.
you might try breaking that line in two.
the first having him come to realize or reach awareness
and the second that he's the pavement.
it's good as is, maybe it could be better.

"i'd give my soul to be where i was a year ago... if i had a soul left to give"

Not really. It was more of a general "good people get walked on in life" statement, but it made me think of the episode, and I needed a title, so there you have it.

Thanks for the comments SYK.
