"Think..." by Eric Wayne Flynn

"Think..."

All I do is think and think for days

All I do is think and think of ways

To vacate my mind

Chance for a new me

To vacate my mind

Chance to live free

On a plot of land, down by the ocean

Changing of the tide, wash out all the commotion

Thoughts of sea, weeding though blues n greens

A bipolar bear torn between the sun and the moon

Sittin on a porch

Sippin on some tea

Shootin the shit with the breeze

A soldiers mind, at ease

AWOL from the war

Fought between the ears

Thought between the ears

Sought through all the years

Caught with eyes of tears

Wiping out, an old soul thinking bout days when young

When he thought he knew it all

Now he knows some

Just a lil bit to share with the waves

That travel and crash and disintegrate, to go back and be born again

Gaining speed out to sea to rush to shore and crash, in due time

Sittin there in a rockin chair with a groovy tune

Soaked in words from the past

An old coot

Hootin and hollerin at his shadows

Smothered in green

Grass n sun n me, what a team

A dark dream

A scheme

A plot

A crazy motherfucker

Laughing at his own joke

      It seems like a rollercoaster ride through the past, present and future Eric, weaving between dreams and reality....then again maybe I'm way off track. Great write!
