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.
