Interrupted

Folder: 
Crimson

I was alone with my thoughts on this cold, rainy night
Searching through my mind for some way to shed some light
On all the questions that cascade my fragile mind
When I was interrupted by a voice without a sight

From somewhere deep inside the voice came in shuddering waves
Rocking to my core the very essence it pervades
As it wrapped around my conscious in my mind it did invade
My thoughts were interrupted and the message sent was grave
Said "Stop the road you follow, before it takes you away
You have only one life to live and for once you need to stay
I know you feel alone and you think leaving is the way
But for the first time in your life, you need to sit and wait"

The waiting game again, the one that never takes
By a voice so very clear with a tune that will not fade
Do the powers seem to know that I want to run away
Or is it my own mind that wants me just to stay
The sky is always on my mind in every way
To fly off into nowhere, to run off and feel safe
Constantly perplexed by the random acts of pain
Selfishly I wish to just forget the passing days

But a voice so clear inside me says to stick it out and wait
For what I am not sure, but my boss told me today
That he thinks I'm underpaid
It was a good feeling, to know he thinks that way
I actually asked for second shift, and he said no way
I laughed a little bit, because my boss wants me to stay
I was ready to quit, just walk out of that damn place
Until a voice interrupted me, and said not to go away

With one foot out the door, and the other on its way
My thoughts were interrupted by the truth they gave away
So maybe I should listen; just bide my time and wait
After all there is tomorrow, it's just another day
Why be in a hurry to get up and leave this place
Oh, my thoughts were interrupted by the heed that I should pay

It's a sign of getting older.

It's a sign of getting older. Don't get too locked in to familiarity. True adventurers of life are a rare breed that appreciate life in it's fullnes. They know the true meaning of enjoying the simple things. 2 years ago I bought my first house (soley, on my own). It was a 'first' for me, and now I know why. For all of its blessings, and the good feelings of home ownership, when it comes right down to it, it really only means a 'shackle', and I was one of the most happy go lucky apartment dwellers you would ever want to meet for many years. I can relate to this, though, because in my youth I would do crazy sh*t like leave  job before I had another one---I leaned fast about that. Glad to see you have apparently learned too.! Hope you get the raise your boss thinks you desrve and he can live up to his lipservice, Being told how fantastic you are without any manifestation of it can get a little old fast.

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "
