“Free”
completed on 7/9/10

i can feel the seconds slipping by
watch the world pass me by
watch my dreams crumble away
sometimes i can’t shoot for the moon
because i’m not sure you’ll catch me

all i want is to follow my dreams
the only reward comes from walking the tightrope
but i’m on the sidewalk
taking baby steps toward mediocrity

my frustration’s boiling over
i vowed to follow my dreams
but i’m tripping on everything
it makes me want to scream

i’m tumbling like a bird with clipped wings
crash and burn to a future of could have been’s
if only tears could wash away
all the things that make me scared
then i could find the things that set me free
