perspective


What i once saw as a way down, i now see as a way out. I heard somewhere, perhaps in a film something to this effect: "What does one do when one has no way out? He digs himself further in." This does prove to be the case often times. Luck was on my side and i stopped digging. We all need to put the shovel down and look around to see how deep we are sometimes. Deep in a pit of our own making, walls grown up around us while we dig, eyes fixed downward, unaware. Someone threw me a rope. A cab driver from Manhattan. Who'd of thought? Giving back that precious gift that was so freely given to him. Now I have this rope i carry around with me....ready to throw it down should i find someone who wants out of their own rabbit hole. I'm alive.

  1. My lonely Friend..
    I haven't seen my lonely friend in quite some time...
    He used to be a bitter man, was always feeling blue..
    He would always spread his misery, it was worse than a winter's flu...
    His heart was full of agony, his soul was full of pain...
    This merciless disease he had was driving him insane...
    He loved to dip into the river which sang the melody of sorrow, then turning around to look at her he'd say "I promise, I'll quit tomorrow."...
    Finally, he realized that tomorrow would never come for it's in today that all things must get done...
    It's been sometime since I've seen my friend, I know he's still around. I know he'll make it through today because a new life he has found...
