I Don't Know - Part 2
I'm sitting here once again
Watching the road pass
Everything just as confusing as last time
I'm still just as lost
And I've changed
I'm going out on my own more
Thinking more independently
Yet I still remain off that one exit in the middle of nowhere
I'm still that one house
I still feel alone
Maybe love is my only problem
If I had someone to make me feel safe and secure
Would I question myself as much?
Would I still feel as empty and lonely as I do now?
I don't know.
I just noticed a mile marker though - I didn't notice those last time
Perhaps.....perhaps those are the highlights in life, those mile markers.
Those special moments you're always suppose to remember
~ Just a thought.
The trees still stand tall - ThankGod!
Because without my trees to lean on
- without those I look up to and turn to for advice I'd be completly lost.
More so than I am now
And I still question why I can't be more like them - I try.
But I can't get it right.
And I gave up on those exits that always confuse me to no end
- For I'm starting to get confused on just this straight road.
I don't need detours in life to confuse me even more anymore.
Because now, for some reason, everything leads to tears.
Confusion, frustration, anger, happiness, and of course pain.
So I could use as little confusion as possible...less tears.
The ones that say there's food or lodging or gas at the next exit.
Those signs...the small things in life?
Should I remember them later on down the road?
Better yet - should I be able to?
Because Lord knows I can't remember what I wore yesterday.
And what about those ridges on the side of the road?
You know, the ones that make an annoying sound if you run over them?
Well, I guess I consider them as guides.
Guides to stay on the right path.
Like a smile, or encouragement......or love.
All ridges, guides, on the side of the road.
I don't know...anything right now.
I'm just thinking while I'm lost.
Lost in life.
And I'm ending this by falling asleep again.
Simply because I'm tired
Maybe next time I'll know.
Maybe next time I'll have the answers to life.
Maybe bext time I'll stay awake.
...I don't know......
