I am running.

This is a short poem about how things can seem to change, but not change at all. Also about deciding to change.

Which way next?

I am running on the spot. Scenery changes, not a lot
Wake up. Go to work. Go home. Another year past
Dreams forgotten, faded, abandoned. Reality bites hard
I am running on the spot. Scenery changes, not a lot

I am running on the spot. New faces become old
Children grow up, move away, come back, move away
Old persons die, sadness is brief, then forgotten
I am running on the spot. New faces become old

I am running on the spot. Is the path, the road, set?
The pinnacle of achievement reached, mediocre
Accepted, one's lot in life a burden, not a gift
I am running on the spot. Is the path, the road, set?

I am running on the spot. It is never too late.
There is always a fork, in the road to decision
Just pay attention, look for the signs, because
I am running on the spot. It is never too late.
