It's been said that the definition
of insanity is doing things the same way
and expecting different results
You know, this makes me say,
****, I must be crazy
Crazy for even trying
Crazy for buying
into that false belief
that all will eventually
be okay when
essentially
I've just been doing
the same **** thing, evidently
See, this **** is on ricochet
or something, you feel me
**** I must be crazy
Friggin out of my **** mind
Doing the one step forward
two steps boogie on your behind
Shall we have this dance?
Come on, prance with me now
take a chance with me now,
I pressed fast forward, but life
didn't advance with me now
Keep doing the same moves
over and over into a frenzied pace
I'm dancing as fast as I can, but apparently,
not fast enough to win this race
I keep coming out an also ran
cause I'm just about all out
of the marbles I keep tripping over
Over
And Over
And Over
Again

...If you recognize it
you've already began to change it

Brilliant piece sis...

Love the repitition...which emphasized
the theme of the poem
also love the energy you created
with the way you wove the words
together so tightly to create the
feeling of tension, urgency and frustration

This is definitely a slightly different style
...this piece had EDGE ~ love it

Sometimes we have to do things we've never done
to get things we never had...this is my motto
and you proved it in this peace...

Much love,
Sage
