Time In A Bottle (Drifting…)

Updated on July 21, 2016

Drifting Away...

Drifting on a boat to nowhere. Learning but never taken lessons as learned. Will my life find it’s destiny? Find the love thats meant for me and me alone. Tears cried, love lost. My heart breaks from loneliness. Missing my heart, my love, my life.

Drifting to nowhere thinking very hard about the choices I’ve made throughout the years. Damn, I’ve made some stupid mistakes. When will I ever learn? My mother and grandmother asked me. When will I gain the strength to fight what makes me weak and bring me down?

Drifting, drifting, searching for a sign but no clue in sight. Time keeps ticking and I’m bound to find freedom in the nick of time or am I running out of time as I drifted away in this time bottle.
