The questionable paths
« on: August 30, 2007, 04:28:30 AM »
(Please tell me your thoughts on this)

I lay my instrument down
At the empty headstone of wisdom
And turn my back unto
The vast and minute kingdom

I summon my faithful steed
And ride out of the gate
Into an old beginning
And away from my decided fate

There’s a familiar ending
To every new beginning
I throw my gloves down into
This quicksand that’s got me spinning

There’s books I’ve read that tell me
How it’s s’posed to be done
But I’ve burned all the pages
‘Cuz they took away my fun

With a handful of sidewalk chalk
And a bottle of No Doz
We send a message to the heavens
That we are not their foes

There’s a familiar ending
To every new beginning
I throw my gloves down into
This quicksand that’s got me spinning

Asleep face down in the grass
With a mouthful of dew
I roll over and peer up at
The place where freedom once flew

Climbing up long forgotten trees
In the hopes of reliving a memory
Of a time when we knew everything
Of a time when memories came free

There’s a familiar ending
To every new beginning
I throw my gloves down into
This quicksand that’s got me spinning

There’s a familiar ending
To every new beginning
I throw my gloves down into
This quicksand that’s got me spinning

I can’t take this spinning… anymore

I really like it a lot.  I wondered about the use of "cuz' and "no doz" since the rest of it feels nearly medievil in tone and setting.  But other than that it's a really good read, and full of possibility when it come meaning and intention.  Thanks for sharing it with us.

*sigh*

I'm so glad I posted this here.  My hard drive crashed and this is the only copy of it left that I know of... whew...

And I'm learning guitar so hopefully I can try to put some music to it soon :)
