Time Ticking By

Freedom is a state I seek Every moment I lie awake Another sunray filters in Rousing rumors when sleep set in Over thinking every move I make Forgetting nothing but what matters Mindless muddles of troubled thought No erasing what's unwittingly taught Empty cupboards and a life that's hollow Morning such a tough pill to swallow A day with me on the back porch swing Listening closely to the Tanagers sing Another day just like the last Time ticking by but not to fast
