Life’s like a Hampster Wheel

Do you ever get the feeling that you’re just living day to day?

But that even if you tried to run, for some odd reason you stay?

There’s always something, whether it’s an oddity,

A treasure, Or a calamity,

It weakens your will and forces you to give in

To let cycle begin again

Did you get the feeling that you’ve seen the same road?

Once, twice, 3,672 times before?

I know it seems like I’m ranting about bullshit

And you’re thinking that life isn’t that way

That hard, that routine, that repetitive, that bad…..

But One day, one day when you look down at your watch

and realize it’s the 15th time you’ve done that in 3 minutes….

You’ll know what I mean.

How Life seems to rip at the seams

Right when your in reach of your dreams

And you’re stuck on the wheel

Either running to get away, or chasing that eternal dream

But nothing ever moves

Cause that old road, isn’t what it seems

I mean, We walk around all our lives being told what to do, who to do it with, when, where, it get’s pretty insane, but there is no why. Have you ever asked why? I’m sure if you did, that you’ll get one of three responses: “‘Cause I said so,” (Yeah, and I’m pretty sure that’s an effective argument in any court of law) “Because it’s for your own good” (My personal favorite, I mean, excuse me, mom/dad, I think I would like to be the judge of that), or, “Mind your own business” (Holy Shit! I thought my actions were my own business, glad I know the truth now). Seriously people, Our lives are a constant run, we keep going through it, searching for the right path, the right opportunity, and the right life, but no matter how fast, or how hard we run, we never get anywhere and the world just keeps on going.
