Slip into another fail,
brush it off, swiftly exhale.
Walk across an endless trail,
touch the wind, as my life sails.
Navigate an empty street,
city sounds match my heartbeat.
Roll my eyes, look inwardly,
Day and night always the same,
years pass by repeating games.
Swim through lies to reach the truth,
read through thoughts, uncover proof.
End cycles forced to repeat,
make stagnancy obsolete.
Hike up stream to catch a view,
watch as years leave future clues.
Shuffle feet to sweep warm sand,
palm trees dance, sun rays kiss land.
Saltwater hues mist the air,
clears away every last care.
Open eyes answers are found,
memories float all around.
Each day brings more clarity,
to define reality.
