So Far

Turning ever turning
The never ending cycle goes
Throughout our lives,
The heartbreak and the yearning,
We live and learn to love
And as we grow the days go faster
So little have we learned
In our hearts we hold a purpose
Lead our lives out like a circus
You're a clown, that painted smile
Is not your own.
And as the years are turning
I feel a never ending burning
Within my heart, away from you,
So many miles from home.

Written in 1969

    wow, Craig and to think you wrote this way back in '69 . So wise even in your younger days!!! Congrats on the win. btw, I was still in diapers. JUST KIDDING. I was riding my sting ray bike to junior high and back! And dreaming about my crushes.

    I can almost hear a guitar playing these words. Soft and gentle.

    i love the comparison with the clown and the blunt line afterward, "it is not your own" sadly i think this desrcibes many of us, we smile when we do not feel happy inside, or smile fakely. nice write. very cute =Juli-Michelle=
