Where do you want to be?

Where do you want to be_5808998332_o
I had an after thought about this piece, a clarification if you will…
Sometimes a place is physical, and sometimes metaphysical!
Just sayin’.

Sometimes there are places you want to go,
and places that you want to be…
Maybe you’ve been there before,
and maybe it didn’t work out….
Or maybe you’re not allowed,
or you’re told you shouldn’t go.

Sometimes there’s a “sign”, sometimes a “barrier”.
And sometimes, sometimes it’s just a feeling…
An everlasting feeling, an everlasting goodbye.
You can choose to ignore the warnings,
Ignore the signs, the barriers, the feelings…
and you might get hurt, you might get wet…
but does it really matter?

In the journey of life, does it really matter?

When a river overflows, the waters will recede…
and where you once sat, you can sit again….
Take a moment to take a chance
If you get hurt, you cry…
If you get wet, you’ll dry.

So where do you want to be?
Right now, this afternoon?
Are you there?
Are you waiting for the water to recede?
What do you see? Do you see me…
sitting there?

Yesterday a picture evoked a tear,
Today a picture spoke to me
And the word of the day… “everlasting”
And the book of the day… about Heaven and Hell,
and the fate of every person who ever lived…
Love Wins!

Does it?
