I felt a stirring inside of me
That with time has grown.
I feel restless, poised
But for what
Don’t know where I’m at.
Just living day to day
Waiting for the sun to come out.
Growing older, even my body betrays me
Yet don’t know what I want.
Ambition beckons me to step on the first lane
But my body calls me to nurture.
I am so tired of fighting
My brain against my body
Restless, always wanting more
Will I ever find contentment?
