FTH ~ What Works For MeMature

What Works For Me

 

I’ve climbed so many mountains

I’ve crossed the broken bridges

I’ve swam the open oceans

And fallen into a few deep ditches

 

So far I’ve walked a million miles

So far, I’ve come up empty

And so many times I’ve had to remap my mind

While I was looking to find my thing, you see

 

Yeah, but still I’m looking to find

Looking to find, looking to find what works for me

 

Now I’ve seen too many dirty looks

Staring down at me

And too many times their doubting heads shook

Swearing in disbelief

But they just can’t seem to see

That I’m looking to find my dignity

 

And so many pages have been turned

So many lessons have been learned

But I’ve never made the same mistake twice

And given some I’ve made

That, in itself, is nice

 

But, but still I’m looking to find

Looking to find, looking to find what works for me

 

I know the shelves are stacked

With books of broken dreams

But I don’t think that’s so bad

I think it only means…

 

That I can’t move mechanically

And pretend I submit to society

That just doesn’t work for me

Early to rise, then early to retire

Just to stock the boss’ fire

That’s not the kind of life I see

 

So I’m looking to find

Looking to find, looking to find what works for me

The End
