Big wheel keeps spinning going around
An echo repeating same droning sound
The words living inside your private curse
As you are thinking this could not be worse
Internal chatter turns over again
The glass half empty so you never win
Prisoning treadmill stuck on a track
The voice inside machinegun flak
Longing for a garage cars nestled in bed
You sit in smugness while your ego is fed
As you push forward pursuing your quest
Voices keep pounding never letting you rest
You think your life will not improve
Eternal sentence to push the same grove
Craving newness a different perch
A place to call home that is your search
So you keep striving onward and up
While the voice inside sees the same empty cup
Spinning and bubbling as it bucks and brews
No matter the accolades it’s saying you lose
All of a sudden you let go of all
Something internal saves you from free fall
A new way of seeing graces your perspective
A new way of being supplies new directive
When was the last time you were frustratingly stuck?
What finally moved you? Was it some external event or an internal shift or some combination of both?
Now that you have had that experience is there a way to repeat it in the future? Can you teach it?
