    It’s so funny how it should be
    Stranger strangeness than the world you see
    When you’re trying
    Seeming so endlessly
    To reach the top
    Of an uphill climb

    That’s where they stuck that little flag
    Of supposed to be happy and never sad
    And although you feel it’s time
    Happy you really should be
    It still feels like you’re going down
    And downhill still feels like something you need to climb

    And every petty pompous
    Mundane excuse for existence
    The weary footsteps waste your time
    Are still making their uphill climb
    Keeps on tugging on the shoestring
    You left dangling

    From your soul

    But then you wonder how it could be
    Stranger in the strangest world you see
    You’re awake now, but nothings changed
    The no care there was still remains
    And the only way you can be free
    Is by knowing something caring comes from the inside of me

    What made you stop, what made you believe
    A moment of patience, a pinch of purpose
    To see the world so few of us rarely see
    So you let go of your acceptance
    Walked away from the ridiculous circus
    With its tiny bellicose flags of impossibility

    Now does it still feel like you’re going down
    Does downhill still feel just like a climb
    Are these the wasted weary footprints of your time
    Are you still making that uphill climb
    Or are you following that tugging shoestring
    You know the one you left dangling

    From your soul

    And there in the valleys the hills roll just as easily as the sky

      So I doubt this will help your writing at all, but I thought that I would say it anyway... When I read this I see some guy in one of those underground cafes (if there is such a thing I don't know, maybe I'm getting it mixed with something else) with a little French hat in all black, maybe even smoking a cigarette reading this out in one of those story tale voices. Going up and down.... changing with the rhythm.... I know that probably doesn't help, but I thought I would share lol

    Keep Up the Good Work...
