Eclectic thoughts of a never ending mind

Updated on July 13, 2011

Let's face it, sometimes things can get overwhelming. Maybe you're a single mother trying to provide for her children? Maybe you're teen who's trying to get through the every day stress of high school? We've all been there, that point when it just hasn't been your day or even your week and nothing seems to go the right way. That's where I was a few days ago. I had a pretty stressful week and I was at a mental standpoint where I couldn't get myself out of the funk I had been in for a few days. So, I did what I always do when I need a little pick-me-up. I let my mind hang on this simple thought....


I’d like to take a journey

On a winding road

Past the lush green pastures

Not knowing where to go

Toward the distant mountains

Past the rolling hills

Onto open landscapes

Where no one dare to build

Maybe toward the ocean

Where no one can be seen

Or somewhere even better

Like somewhere in my dreams
