"Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way.
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way.

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain.
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today.
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you.
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun.

So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again.
The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older,
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.

Every year is getting shorter never seem to find the time.
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone, the song is over,
Thought I'd something more to say."

- Time, #PinkFloyd

As the long as the million lights up, makes noise, and is licensed by Disney, it'll be fine.
 
I'd close my eyes and sob quietly

I don't usually write this kind of stuff, but it came to me recently. Hope you like it.

The Road Home
-------------------------------

The shape of the land
Half remembered, passing under
Time slows
You wish you were closer

Planned for weeks
Or on a whim
You left early
But it's getting dim

The mountains, the landmarks
Familiar turns and signs
Archived here
Like a shrine

Constant flash bulbs
In the mind
Recall this place or near
Once upon a time

Your course passes by
The stones in the yard
Ancient ones
Keep there guard

The storied lands
Revered by Thoreau
It once was theirs
Though long ago

The old route
Known since youth
Has brought you back
Home in truth

The hour has arrived
The clock mocks
It's time to go
Don't forget your socks!

New memories
Ringing in your ear
One more game
It will have to wait a year

The welcoming path
Now seems cruel
The pointed rose
Shapes the duel

A voice inside you
Has its say
The simple phrase
One day I'll stay

- Jon Belanger, July 2016
