When was it I gave up,
The dreams that I once had?
I'm lost in confusion
And feeling pretty bad.

In a big dark tunnel
Can't find my way back out
I'm lost within my mind
It's lacking all but doubt.

I think I'm in a rut
Confusion on both sides
Instead of happiness
It's sadness that presides.

I'm lost in direction
Not knowing where to go
The present condition
The same old status quo.

There's something lacking here
Don't quite know what it is
The vigor has run out
Life's taste has lost its fizz.

The umph to do is gone
I really just don't care
And burdens bring me down
My life has lost its flare.

WhtDove: Sounds like you need one of Toe's VAX machines..*g* Tie a duster on your cat's tail, I do that and then add some sellotape to his fur and he races round the house...ROFL

HUGS

ps: That was a joke...LOL

Sadness visits all of us,
As time so swiftly passes by
Dreams that never did come true
And then we wonder why?

We all have our dark tunnels,
We all lose our direction,
Life's made up of ups and downs,
No one promised us perfection.

Sometimes I wish I still was,
A paperboy back home,
Then only thick papers and a few mean dogs,
Were the only problems that I'd known.

Well, there was rain and cold and sleet,
And hittin' porches from the street,
Oh, and grouchy people on collection day,
And it really sucked considering pay.

So maybe changing the "Status Quo"
Just might be the way to go,
When "Life's taste has lost it's fizz"
It doesn't mean that's all there is.
Cuz it's really up to you,
To create a different "Life's Menu."

Rainbow I would if I had a cat. Can't do it to my dog, cause she was injured Friday. She got hit by a car.

Toe, thanks so much buddy! I know I need to change the Menu, that is where my confusion lies. So much I wanna do, don't know where to go.

One of those days WHTDOVE? I hate the feeling when you've lost your zest. Hopefully I'll catch you soon my friend.
Cheer up. (HUGS)

Very goog work, very well done too.
The blues is like having a cold, for the first few days it's awful, then it goes away, and you feel much better. Just look forward to when your skies are bluer, and the sun is
shinning down on you.

WhtDove,
You have the right idea, get a fishing pole
put some faith on the line and you'll catch plenty of fizz.
