What Is Happening?


Thee end of thee empty space that surrounds me

Could it be on it's way?

I glow in the light of recovery

I still shine in the clean life

I know just what happens

When the world slams into my face

I end up an alienated being

Deserted for all I care

If the winds hit me strong

__I can carry on

And move on with my life

__and let go

But I haven't felt the wind

I'm not on a boat

I'm nowhere near a forest

I'm out of touch with nature

__so to say

If I wake up on a floating log

Will I know how I got there?

Will I know what's going on?

I hesitate to know the truth

Watch me fidget in all I do

My, how thee inevitable changes

__still do, manage to take place

On the seat of my pants

__I hold on for the ride

And I get dropped on my head

__from time to time

But I get up

__and can muster the strength

____to not let it get the best of me

But now I've found somebody

That I don't know if I could have

I don't know if should

And I don't know if I can

I fall to my knees

__and plead

But I always wonder

__"why am I even asking?"

At first

__when I met her

____years ago

I was intimidated

Now I feel myself getting closer to her

I don't know if she notices

The question I have

__is "does it matter?"

I have yet to find her in my dreams

I don't know if I will

Does that matter?

I live on

If it happens

Or if it doesn't

I'm not too hung up over a future

__I don't know if I'll have

I don't know

So it doesn't get to me

It just confuses me

And makes me curious

I'm just glad it's a long ways

__'til 4th. Of July

'Cause I wanna do this right
