I’ve found some old journals which include early work of mine. I’m including some of them here, unaltered, as an ‘early take’. With this one, I include my commentary written at the time.
Round and round and round we go
Until the time when we will know
Break the circle, break the chain
Cross the bridges
through the walls and passed the pain
In the distance behind the light
stand so tall but not so bright
It’s only after you get passed the ‘bright lights’ stage of anything that you can really judge it. Especially in relationships. So many people take the attitude that it’s pointless to work on a relationship when you can run right out a get another one.
They don’t realize that even if you find another one anywhere near the quality of the one you left that your still going to reach the same stumbling blocks in every relationship.
It’s how you deal with those stumbling blocks that determine whether you perpetuate the circle or break out of it into something more meaningful.
