Stuck in This Rut

Stuck in this rut and can't seem to get out;

seems like each day is filled with more doubt.

Day in and day out always more of the same;

searching and looking but not into the game.

Do you finally give in and just settle for less;

when you know that will lead to another big mess.

The nights do get lonely and the days seem to lag;

it's the wanting and yearning that is such a drag.

You think it would get easier the older you get;

but, no, it gets harder on that you can bet.

So set in your ways and you know you won't change;

your hopes and your dreams you can't rearrange.

Life's lessons have taught me what I need to be free;

the things that i must have to continue to be me.

So I wonder sometimes if it is just too late;

but part of me knows that I will continue to wait.

Giving up is not an option for the need is still there;

if it takes a bit longer then I just can't despair.

Will just keep moving forward and plugging along;

waiting for that someone to hear my heart's song.
