Eternal Skipping Rock

Over water I’m an eternal skipping rock,
Always running from the ticking clock.
Constantly wondering what’s on the other side;
Searching for a safe place to hide.

Can’t seem to stay but unable to go,
And always smiling for the sake of the show.
Feels like I’m torn between right and wrong;
I know the lyrics but I can’t remember the song.

I’m older but exactly where I was before,
And I still don’t know what’s behind the door.
My problems are getting bigger with age,
While I stay trapped within this ruthless cage.

They said things would get better as I grow up,
But pain, it never seems to stop.
I’ll never be able to stop my heart from breaking,
As I’ll stay in a world that’s always shaking.

 Over the water I’ll stay on skipping,
And with myself I’ll keep on tripping.
I’m oh so tired of fighting this fight;
Someday I’ll hopefully get it right.
