Walk. Don't Run.

by

K. Cameron

These are my thoughts,
You can take them or leave them-
About things in your life
That are keeping you from breathing.

You seem to keep on running
Like a hamster on a wheel.
Thinking youíre getting somewhere
And, yes, the circles are real.

You run and you run
And then you run some more.
And when you stop for a moment
You see thereís no new door.

So you run and you run
Around in more circles you go.
Looking for that door of happiness
Where life is peaceful and slow.

The circles take you nowhere.
They only take up time.
Precious time from this short life,
You donít see the rain or sunshine.

Youíre so busy keeping busy,
Afraid to follow your desires.
So you run and you run, and run
Just fighting all those fires.

Sometime youíll have to make yourself
Stop that crazy wheel.
Get off. Look around.
And feel whatever you feel.

Stop those exhausting circles
That you think are taking you away.
From your painful, unhappy feelings
That are still there at the end of each day.

For once, think about YOU and what YOU want,
Not others and their needs.
Look closely for your FLOWER
Hidden amongst the weeds.

Because I know it is out there,
Your beautiful, God-made flower.
And when you finally find it,
You will finally feel the POWER.

The power to STOP running in circles
Such unnecessary running--
In circles, getting nowhere.
Youíll look back and see it was funny.

Funny how much life was wasted
Because you would not stand still.
You would not look and listen.
Your life, it WAS that wheel.

No more circles, no more running.
No more fighting just to keep busy.
No more breathless days.
No more of that wheel that makes you dizzy.

Just think about the concept,
I know what Iím talking about.
I have done the same thing,
And NO ONE will pull you out.

You have to be still and listen
For the answers, they will come.
Answers to your life questions,
Be still. Listen. Walk. Donít run.


Prince Charming

Itís hard to believe that Iím sitting here writing
At 2 in the morning, on the computer Iím typing.
I can hardly think straight, but drank coffee, so Iím wired.
Iíve been thinking so much, why didnít he call, was he too tired?

I guess I donít really have the right to think such things.
We just met and I guess thereís not much there.
The words he spoke when he left, "Iíll call you later"
Were just to make me think he cared.

I know that sounds cruel, but itís the story of my life.
A promise, kind words, thatís all they turn out to be.
It may not be intentional, it doesnít matter
The pain is real to me.

Someday I will learn to live my life
By relying on only me.
Iím the one thatís always there
Through sun and clouds, through cold and heat.

I guess some people just donít understand
How their actions hurt another.
When they say theyíll do one thing
And then they do another.

It may seem something simple
Like not calling when they promised.
Itís usually an indication of things to come,
Then they always expect forgiveness.

I can handle it for a while,
But why go through that pain?
Iíve been through it too many times.
I need to see some sunshine through this rain.

I guess IíLL ACCEPT MY LIFE ALONE
NO MATTER HOW IT SEEMSS.
Waiting for "Prince Charming"
Is truly just a dream.
