Sometimes I reach a point in life....where it feels like life is on "Pause"...

And I can't wait...until this point in time that I am frozen in....eventually thaws.

It is like...a great big "Pause Button"...has been pressed...that holds me here...

Oh ...the dull monotony of it all...the same-the same-the same...year after year.

Each step a struggle...to achieve the simplest things...

Each morning...looking for the hope...that each new day brings,

Another day gone...much the same...to heap upon the pile...

Another place...to be at for the moment...Is it all worthwhile ?

Faced with so many possibilities...that can never start...

How long must they play their games...Rejection begins to erode one's heart.

A New day...to watch the world pass you by...

For loss of opportunities...I could hold my head down...and cry.

A footnote...is what this time should have been...in my eyes...

A mega-long endless movie series it has become..with out rights to the franchise.

Boring...to say the least...no adventure...and lacking fun...

Working to pay-out for everything...and then get back on the treadmill...'Cause I ain't done.

It is really nothing new...

Something we all must do.

But...I would like to set off a spark...

If given a chance...Maybe...even leave my mark.

Upon this Globe...that keeps spinning 'round and 'round...

I want to jump to the next intersecting point in time and space...No...I want to bound !

Remove the shackle that encases my dream...and bust that "Pause Button"...once and for all...

I'm tired of reaching each end of the day...where all I have to show...is "I'm still standing tall !"

Depressing?...You might say...Well maybe "Yes" and...maybe "No"...

Partly because...I want to move on...Partly because...that's just how things go !

"Snow Miser"...could put the "Freeze" on anything and was not easy to look at...when I was a kid. (Along with his brother!)

"Elsa" from the Disney Movie: "Frozen"...Froze her whole kingdom at once. Much to the icy cold amusement of animation for young kids everywhere!

I am trying to read the fine print...and trying to discover under which clause...

Where it says it is alright to keep my Life here...at this point...stuck on "Pause".

By what grand design...in the scheme of things...across the Universe...and all it displays ?

Has it become necessary to hold me here at this spot...stuck here in this time and place.

To move forward...I would...though I would stagger each step...by one step...at a time...

Surely...I move up ahead...I know that I saw that once...somewhere in my mind.

I pry back the "Pause" button that keeps me here...only to find...

That activating the "Pause" button on my life...has got me running...way far behind.

To tear out the things that hold me back...to bust out free from where I've become froze...

Takes me to the new things...just up ahead...Takes to me to new places...where no one hardly goes.

When...I get further on... and look back...at all the time my Life was on "Pause" right here...

I'll laugh that I conquered the "Pause"...(*) "I came...I saw...I kicked Its' _ss!"...Is what I'll cheer !

Interject Footnote Comment Here:

(*) "We came...We saw...We kicked Its' _ss!" Quote from the movie: Ghostbusters

The "Pause" is lifted for me now...and things around me...start moving once again...

And I am free to move all around once again...Out there...moving with the driftin' wind.

There'll be no more "Pause" Buttons on our lifes...From this point on...we move the ball down field...on a well-coordinated Offense Attack...

So join with me...and rip your "Pause" button away...that holds each and everyone of us...back !
