Trying Too Hard

By Bruce Clifford

Trying too hard
Not trying at all
Taking it too far
The rise and the fall

Lost in a dream
Trapped in a time
What could this mean
As I struggle to survive

Trying too hard
Not wasting my time
Is there a god
Do I have a place in this line

Lost in the real
Flying through time
What could I feel
Do I ever arrive
Do I get out of this alive

Trying too hard
Living in clouds
Taking it too far
The noise gets too loud

Lost in the real
Flying through time
What could I feel
Do I ever arrive
Do I get out of this alive

1/5/2020 Bruce Clifford
