My 2nd entry on this site is really nothing more than a melody that popped into my head on my way to work this morning. I've noticed some posts and writings regarding writer's block and this little diddy (while probably not my best) is a prime example of something I have recently changed in my approach to writing in general. It's really very simple when you look at it from this point of view.

First of all, I'm 43 years old, married, a father of two and I work 10 hours every day. I play music at night and on the weekends. There really just isn't that much in my life that is very exciting to write about these days. Once I realized this, it was as if someone turned a light on for me. Everything I write does not have to be so very personal and give the reader an in depth look to my soul. Sure, some of the things I write are very personal, but this morning's musings have no "in depth, personal" ties to me or my family. It's a thought and while it may not be something that strikes close to home for me, I'm sure it will for someone else. THIS is the beauty of writing. We can write about whoever, whatever and whenever. The world is your notebook, all you have to do is rip out a page.

LET IT GO....

Blue skies and sunshine come creeping in
Big white clouds keep rolling on
But I don't think I could find
A darker spot in my mind
I can't believe what I'm seeing
And I can't see what you're dealing
But I'd like to find
Some brighter times

And - Ohhhhhhh......
I don't think I can Let it go
But if I could change it all
I surely would
And I don't think I'm ever
Going to wake from this Nightmare
And if I could
Would you even care?


Lot's of water under the bridge
Making big dark pools of done you wrong
But its got to run its course
Before it's gone
I need to be hearing what you're saying
And you need to be fixing what's decaying
Then, maybe we could find some time
And hit rewind

And OHHHH.......
I don't think I can Let you go
But if I could change it all
I surely would
And I don't think I'm ever
Going to wake from this Nightmare
And if I could
Would you even care?
