Reading through the want ads looking for something to do.
Everyone wanted experience, and I haven’t done the time.
Perhaps in the past I would have lied and tried my best.
Learning what I could before I was given my parole.
And applying that knowledge to the next economic sentence.
Can’t believe no matter where I go, there I would chains waiting.
Eventually the robots will come and take all of it away.
Destroying our way of life and setting us free, but to do what?
Signals of her desire radiated outward at the speed of emotion.
Even as dense as he was, he had to sense something.
Nodding, he seemed ready to speak. She stepped closer, hopeful.
Don’t you know it he ran away instead? Next time she was going to try semaphore!
Cuddly was not an adjective used to describe Timmy
Rarely was he not bellyaching or griping about something
And even though you would think he had a hard shell he was really a softy
Because of that people would just devour him when the season was right
Proof that you are moving forward can be hard to find
Realize that sometimes just not going backwards as fast is something
Or stay still as everyone around you marches somewhere you don’t want to go
Grieve when you need to grieve, that allow you to move forward
Rest when you are tired. That allows you to move forward
Every step might feel like you are wading through a riptide
So much of life can be like that
Still, one step, then another, always trying. That is how it works. Give yourself credit for…
Outside, the darkness was pierced by the full moon
Making the fallen leaves look hauntingly surreal
It was then we she heard the sound of something approaching
Nearer it got, the faster it seemed to be moving, the louder it became, the harder her heart beat
Old primal fears rose from the depths of her hindbrain. She began to flee the sound
Undulating ground eventually caught her foot causing her to sprawl to the ground
Still, the sounds were getting closer, faster, louder.
Finding all the things that are wrong can be depressing
It can make you want to just throw everything out and get something new
X that idea out, sit down with your list, start at the top and rebuild it and make it yours
Stuck with an itch to do something
Cathy decided to set out on an adventure
Really it was just a trip to the casino
And she only brought fifty bucks
That made it even more interesting to her
Could be she was wasting her time
Hour later she was three hundred to the good, and that made some nice…
Leaving the house, Brad was determined to do something
It had been too long since he had just acted on instinct
Still he didn’t know where he wanted to go
Too many choices, all of them equally good
Looking at his phone, he had two hours before his date
Enough time to do a lot of different things
So he opened his browser to see what was happening around him
Soon the hours had gone by, and he had never left
Creating something out of nothing is hard
Ordinary things take extraordinary amounts of energy
Simple things are anything but simple
That’s why ideas are cheap. It’s the work that gives value
