ONE WAY

Written by: Robyn Blauw

The sun is lost to stardust
Troubled mind at play
Early morning dark hours
Make it a long, long day

Thoughts play on a seesaw
Swings on oiled chains
Merry-go-round is coming up
Heads goes round the game

Precious sleep evades me
Monkey mind the way
I seek for understanding
Words from another day

The hint of things amiss now
And all is not the same
No words that pierce the darkness
Feelings guide the train

Don’t want to be a fool here
I’ve done that one before
I see the den door open
A rug lays on the floor

I’m going to lie down now
To find a mind of peace
Put to rest these feelings
I walk a one way street.
