Seeing the Light in Going Nowhere
There I am, standing still in limbo;
Nothing to do but stand and stare.
My feet are stuck, my soul is numb –
In this state I can’t seem to go anywhere.
The world’s a blur of grey monotony;
My destination no longer clear.
My path has no certainty,
And I’m unable to find the way from here.
I can’t seem to break away;
The horizon’s vanishing in despair.
My progress is at a standstill today –
I’m going nowhere without a care.
Longing for something new and different,
An escape from this painful stillness.
My spirit needs uplifting;
Away from this place of emptiness.
These feet of mine will keep on striving,
Even if my journey never ends.
For hope is what keeps me alive –
No matter how far my life descends!
Hope is the only thing I have;
It’s my guiding light in the night.
Although I’m stuck and going nowhere,
The hope will keep me up and fight.
Letting go of all my worries,
I’ll take a step and start anew.
This journey may be daunting,
But nothing ventured, nothing gained too.
No matter how far I travel,
My destination is unclear.
Wherever it ends up leading me –
At least I know that I’m not here!
My heart has set its sights on freedom;
Every step is a chance to start anew.
Away from this state of limbo,
For now I’m going – somewhere too!
Going nowhere has left its mark,
But I’m still standing tall.
My feet will keep on moving forward –
Wherever that may be, after all!
