The Unknown Is About To Lose It's Cover

Updated on November 6, 2011

It Took Awhile

When I am faced with challanges I did not see

Oh I cry and in disgust I tried so hard to overcome my insecurities

I keep wanting more and I get less

What is it with that ?

It makes my life a mess

I fight with every breath

A life that will make me proud and happy

Some way I have drifted South

Was it I was busy day dreaming when I could of been planning

Was I tricked by humor and you have once again recieved the last laugh

I have egg on my face and a milk mustache

What could be funnier than the truth

Instead of fighting the imposssible it is time to change my tune

I have been out of key for so long

i sound like a scratched record going round and round

This is life not some padded child safe super bouncy where nothing can go wrong

I have put my knee pads on and my bicycle helmet

Now I am ready to play on my terms

I will duck when you throw a right cross

When the sweat pours down and I can't see

I relax and take a minute

Wipe my eyes like a new windshield wiper blades

That can see through the worst of weathers

Because I have prepared myself for the storm that is about to get worse before it is better

Sorry it is too late to run fo shelter

I will face my demons head on

For they have no power when they are in the spotlight

Take a scarey movie and turn on all the lights

Take away the keys when their is possibility for disaster

Playing it safe is not my kind of game

Playing it cool until the heat wave breaks

Battling myself with all my innternal energies

For I can not run and hide from what is inside

I can just try and cry outloud when my head is pounding

Soon I know experience will prevail in the end

The tables will turn because I will have my day in court

The injustices in life are just a series of unrelated incidents

I have tried to make sense

They have no significant meaning

Except to overide each problem with a new experience

Life is always teaching and when I realize I am always the student

I can begin to see how life will change

I let my grudges go even though I want sweet revenge

It is time to find a better way that will not harm others or be so destructive to oneself

I now can turn to love instead of fear

I have found a way to sleep off my problems that persist

When I awake I will have discovered a new found energy that I didn't see before

I will have a new solution in place

When the frustration builds

I go off and play and exercise that tension away

When my body is tired it is a sign I have put it to the test

Each time I fail even though I know I have done my personal best

I will pin a medal on my chest

So I can stand proud and accept all my challanges

Conquering each bad emotion one by one

Finding a good feeling that will give me power and new hope

I am not washed up like a piece of seaglass who has lost its shine

If you look close I am seasoned driftwood that has weathered every storm

I have aged and faded with the sun

But in the end I am still here to fight for what is right

And I know I began this sentence wrong but I am coming on strong

Using every trick up my sleeve and every book I have read

To give me a jump on my next adventure in my head

      Dear Makusar,

      A hub filled with many thoughts and yearnings. I loved those two lines. Seasoned driftwood is something I used to create an art peice from whittling. It takes time and careful thought but in the end a thing of beauty comes out. The earth prepared the wood just for the moment when I would pick it up to create something out of it. It could not be used to soon as it was not ready..

      Much truth spoken here..and an exciting time when change is near.
