Perhaps something inside me
Fell of the shelf 
Of trying
I use to want to please everyone
Chased that so much 
Didn’t even know how to please me

Life will always be happening
Whether we decide to live it or not
can’t let these dreams become idle
Running in this race
Overrun with rats
Sometimes I wanna just hide
Throw off my shoes
Escape to somewhere
Where there’s nothing to do
But write

Oh how that does entice me
Alluring world 
away from
The movers and the shakers
All speeding by 
Off to live their happy big shot lives
I'll sit here holding my penned pieces
Valuable little nuggets
Of mind’s gold
Awakening me 
in increments 
from a slumbered existence
