If there is one thing that is for sure
at least I will know
whenever the time comes
whenever I go
that I’ve tried out some options
some different realities
of life here and there
there won’t be regret
nor any confusion
as I’ll have experienced my life
adding to my personal season.
looking out to the grey desert clouds today
after climbing through a rhododendron thicket yesterday
i am reminded that everything is what i make it
every bit of this life is here because its what i choose.
if i stay long enough i’ll know how my soul feels
how it longs or linger or what it finds real
i guess i’ll keep moving
along till i find
the place where i feel the best
where the sun shines bright.
the thing is that the light shines here
and it also shines there
some places a little more
some places a tad bit clear.
the smell of the dry pinion pine
traded for the honeysuckle of north caroline
of course there’s a happy medium in which i will find
i wonder if its the place i started
the one that transcends time
that stays with me wherever i go
that holds steadfast flying high like the crow?
rhyming my way through the roots of my mind
the leaves of my being
and the branches of time
it sure helps me at least i believe
that at least I will know
what life is like because i’ve tried
because i’ve thought about it
because i’ve made my life mine…
