Running Waters

beautiful-canyon-river-cascade-221178

The tracks I’ve left behind
All the obstacles I’ve avoided
All the holes I’ve dug myself
In and out of

What amazes me
Is after all this effort
I’m still here

Nowhere

I want to be like the running waters that never lie still
They wear the hardest stones and cut the mightiest hills

The past I can’t leave behind
All the old self-contemplations
Lingering too long in
Far-gone situations

What amazes me
Is after all this thinking
I’m still here

Nowhere

I need to be like the running waters that never lie still
They wear the hardest stones and cut the mightiest hills

Crystal clear blue waters running over me
It feels like the world is trying to tell me
That the path I’m walking ain’t no way to be free
You know I think the world just might have something

At last I freed my mind
All done burying dead issues
I don’t have to keep what I
Don’t hold onto

What a change in me
But I’ve found I fear
To leave here

Nowhere

I’m gonna be like the running waters that never lie still
They wear the hardest stones and cut the mightiest hills

Oh those running waters

Never lie

Still

    • I thought you might. It’s a song of course. I like the way it reads simply too. Thanks for checking out last nights crazy efforts. These poems and lyrice go back as far as 27 yrs. Wrote Misery when I was 16. Crazy, right!

      • I will always be interested in everything you write. Checking it out is a privilege.

        16, huh? Goes to show you’ve always been talented.
