How much longer do I keep playing games?
I thought this was over and done.
I'm not sure I can keep this going
I know I should have cut and run.

I seem to have gotten a little confused
the ground rules seem unclear.
I'm not sure I know what I want
or where I go from here.

I say my prayers for some clarity
in the hope I can see some sense
I try to make decisions
no more sitting on the fence.

It's one thing knowing what must be done
it's another to want to start
but going round in circles
wrecks havoc with mind and heart.

I just hope the light goes on
so I can clearly see my way
but something seems to pull me back
and this game again I play

    I know it's no help to say this but I'm sure we have all been there nd done that. Sometimes it just seems like a vicious circle. All I can say is you have to find your happiness within yourself. No one can MAKE you happy. Ecclesiastes 12:13 says: Fear God and obey His commandments for this is the entire duty of man. Once you realize what you are here for the rest is easy. Good job here. God Bless, JB
