Never Satisfied

Never Satisfied

Starin’ far away, on a beautiful day,

Dreamin’ my drive away

The sun on my knees, carressed by the breeze

A ragtop matinee


Between the white lines,

Wishin’ I could revel in the moment


Swirling in my blender brain

Is a kind of existential rain

Keeps me goin’, can’t complain

Pushing me to do


I can’t enjoy the ride

I’m never satisfied

I smile; but I lie

I’m never satisfied


Why do you try so hard       

When half a loaf will feed the masses?

Lying in bed – at half-past dread

It’s time to rise


Maybe you’re dry;  frustrated by time

It’s hard to figure


Never ending thrills to seek but

Falling short of Sinai’s peak

Most excuses, pretty weak

Here we go again



Because I, can’t enjoy the ride

I’m never satisfied

I just drive; just drive

I’m never satisfied


Just give me one more try,

I swear I’ll figure it out

I’ll run an alternate route

Is this life or a live audition?

Please don’t judge me on my last submission
