I Don't Know
I'm watching the road slowly pass
And thinking about this makes me think about life
Slowly passing with no other reason than to be used
I'll admit, life can be good but so far it's mostly been hard
Everyday I set a new record......
On how many things one person can worry about in one day
Why is it that the sadder times are easiest to remember?
Why do I have to rack my brain for past happiness......
Even though there's been plenty of it?
I notice the trees standing along the side of the road
They make me think of everyone I've ever looked up to
Tall and proud. So confident.
Something I doubt I can ever be
Why can't I be more like the ones who've always encouraged me?
Happy with how they look, who they are
More appreciative about lifes little blessings
Are my expectations too high? Do I want too much?
Then I come to the exits with so many different ways to go......
They confuse me like there's no tomorrow
Just as I confuse myself
It amazes me how easily I can be confused,
Especially when I pay attention. Is life that hectic?
Is it that harsh that everything's constantly running through my head?
And then suddenly, when you come across a house
Just sitting there off a road in the middle of nowhere-
You come across me.
I don't know why though. Do I like being alone?
Or does it hurt. Do I really need someone?
Have I resorted to solitude purposely?
I know it's bad, but-I honestly have no clue about myself
And, now-again-watching the road slowly pass by
I get tired
Is it the stripes along the road I'm watching
Or everything else around them
That's hypnotizing me into a sleep
I'm not sure......
All I know is that I have all this on my mind......
While I'm falling alseep.
And I wonder what I'll dream.
I don't know......
