Commitment

Commitment
I could see the mist rising off the cool lake
The leaves had changed colors and fallen on the crowded forest floor
I sit and watch as the world around me is changing before my eyes
But change is something I have yet to accomplish.

My life I have committed to a fantasy
There is no change when all you know is gone
Mental pictures bounce around with no escape
And the past you knew is the future you seek.
