Average Rut

It makes me weak
Makes me drown
“Becoming normal”
Drowning in the mundane
Stuck in an average rut
Can’t find the exit sign
Show me the way out
Take me to the sweet bliss
Of a world laced with ecstasy
Days optimistic
Nights pessimistic
Back and forth
Up and down
Did I choose this ride?
Did I buy the ticket?
Can I ever get off?
Is this it?

Everlasting Journey

Cotton candy skies
The sun sets
Nostalgia seeps in
Longing for simpler times:
The sun didn’t ask as many questions
The moon didn’t expect as many answers
Now the questions are tireless
My answers are dwindling
Falling ever behind in this cycle
Needing a reminder
Dawn is dawn and dusk is dusk
Neither can be a beginning or an end
Let go of your daily attachments
This is an everlasting journey
