sense of direction

sense of direction

 

i’m not lost

but i don’t know where i’m going

 

i’ve been driving down these roads for twenty eight years now

 

i’ve asked for directions a few times

but i never follow them

 

gone passed the barn that meant i’ve gone too far

taken right instead of left

and left instead of right

banged youies

and gotten lost on roundabouts

 

you can’t miss it

 

 

 

 

 

 

i missed it

 

been running on empty

been running on fumes

 

if this ran on dreams

i could get to anywhere i wanted

like that

because this is also a submarine

an airplane

spaceship

and a unicycle

all at once

 

i made it myself when i was six

(patent pending)

 

by age twelve

i started asking the big questions

 

not like

if a tree falls in the forest

and no one was there to hear it

did it make a sound

 

my answer always was

if no one was there to hear it

then who the fuck cares

 

i was asking the bigger questions

like

ARE WE THERE YET

 

there equaling to wherever it is you want to be at this very moment

 

there

for me

equaling to be right next to you

 

wherever you are

whoever you are

 

i’m trying to find you

 

are we there yet

 

no

but i’ve got a feeling that i’m on the right track

 

yeah

i’m not lost

i don’t know where i’m going

but i’m close

and i’ll get there soon

 

someday

by your side
