Somehow I’ve got to turn my mind around
this state I’m in doesn’t feel right
I used to wake up with a buoyancy of spirit but
now I feel backwards or upside down
wallowing in the mud of disappointment
and l’ve lost the glowing core I once took for granted
dark side of the moon, wrong side of the world
some days lost in a salt mine
I wonder what happened in the middle of the story?
what did I do wrong?
I must have done something wrong.
And I don’t know what!
I work all the time and try all the time but
I've lost my hope
like the unfortunate child who can’t hang on to a pair of mittens
this darkness is not what I want
I’d rather wear some gloves and play in the snow!
In fact, I want a snow day soon
the clean beauty
the surprise and that feeling of open space and time
do you remember the magic of that blanket of white?
the pureness of the air and the coziness of home?
