MY DAYS GROW STRETCH AND YEARN

LONGER AND LONGER THOUGH I CONTINUE TO LEARN

WHAT’S THE MEANING OF LIFE? MUSIC OR LOVE?

I FEEL SO FAR AWAY LIFE OFTEN FEELS SO ROUGH

 

THE LISTS OF THINGS I WANT FOR ME GROW

ON AND ON, THE THINGS I KNOW I SHOULD DOES TOO THOUGH

IS THIS GOOD? OR IS IT TERRIBLE? RISKING MORE AND MORE?

I’M DARING TO DREAM AGAIN, READING, BELIEVING TO MY CORE

 

SCRATCHING AT THE WALLS OF THE SAFE ROOM I BUILT

IT WASN’T SAFE, THIS ROOM IS FULL OF SILT

IS WISDOM FOUND ON THE FRONT LINES OR IS IT IN THE BACK?

OF MY OWN LIFE- DO I LIFT MY HEAD AND PICKUP EXPECTATION

OR RETURN IT TO THE RACK.
