September 26 – To Sit Still

I look down the road toward my future
And glance back to the curves of my past
And I think right here in the middle is a nice place to stay
For a while, for a while

I sit down in my present, on the edge of the curb
Look down at the road, all black from the world
And I think right here in between it all is a nice place to be
For a while, for a while

I hold out my hand, stick up my thumb
And think I’ll just wait for another soul to pass
And I think right here is a nice place to catch them by and by
For a while, for a while

The curb is hard on my spine, rigid on my back
But the grass on my hands feels like freedom and choice
And I think that leaning on it is helping me think for a change
For a while, for a while

The sky is open and blue, but down the road it’s foggy and unsure
Back in the past I can see the darkness, can see the faded light
And I think right now its bright, no better place to soak up the sun
For a while, for a while

And if the day turns to night, I know I’ll see the stars
Because in the present they share your dreams
And I think maybe my dreams are just a reach away from here
For a while, for a while

My feet feel antsy, and the present seems tired
Everything is waiting for me to move forward
And I think, tomorrow I will, but today I think I’ll sit
For a while, for a while
