Going To Get There


Most of what I think

__is completely ridiculous


My obtuse belonging cannot be heard

My whereabouts are lost

Where I could be found

Is nowhere

My complete surrender

Baffles me

__to the core

'Cause I have not surrendered

Nor, do I know how

If ever there will come a time

That my worried mind can wander

I sure wouldn't mind

Having to know why



__that I slip

____down, to "the valley"

And, yet

__that I drop

____down, bellow

I hold no doubt

__that I can wound up found, someplace

Just miraculously shown up

__at the shores of mercy

Wondering how my wandering around in life

__got me there

I'm not a dirty man

I'm just perverted

But is that so wrong?

A lack of lust

Sounds more wrong to me

I'd rather have too much of something

Than not enough

It's not like I'm way too much

I'm not criminally horny

I just want the women I want

And I want them now

But I don't go after them

No way

I'm juts a sick twisted fuck

But I don't think there's anything

__wrong with that

The road that I walk down

Is getting narrower and narrower

And harder to continue

__down this path

I worry about my way of travel

Putting off much needed work

Just to work on beautifying it first

But since nothing can change my mind

What's wrong with that plan?

The fears swirl around me inside

But I'm still staying focussed

On my intentions I've put in front of me

I still have faith in my goal

And how can I not?

I'm going somewhere

Aren't I?
