Depression Avenue, Anxiety Lane

My brain says to go left
So my feet instead go right

My soul says to give it up
Yet my body puts up a fight

I’m so tired of feeling low
But my eyes stay in the light

Everybody thinks they know
But they haven’t got the sight

Round and round the Sun may go
But my days aren’t very bright

I have shelter from the cold
Yet my heart has frostbite

I am scared so I act bold
But I mostly feel uptight

  1. One of my Guitar Students many years ago was a direct descendent of Edgars Brother …. Edgar didn’t have any kids , unless he time traveled and had you …
    So lost in time , …is kinda ok …. there are listeners … who know the feelings .
