It’s Not The Same

It’s Not The Same

Why stay here
It’s not the same
No joy, no laughter
No happily ever afters
To look forward to
At the end of the day

I set out on a journey
To reclaim
The better parts of
Yesterday
I visited old monuments
I’ve tasted the bounty that once was
But none of these
Were the same
So why stay here
I’m better to be on my way

Why stay here
It’s not the same
No joy, no laughter
No happily ever afters
To look forward to
At the end of the day

I’ve made it my goal
To restore
What once was my world
So perfect and whole
But I failed miserably
Today has stole everything
So why stay here
Nothing’s the same
I’m better to be on my way

Why stay here
It’s not the same
No joy, no laughter
No happily ever afters
To look forward to
At the end of the day

It’s not the same
It’s not the same
It’s not the same

  1. Ohhhhhh Crystal. This sounds so personal and sad. Don’t get me wrong. You’ve written a beautiful piece. Very well done indeed. Can even be made into a song. But I hope you’re doing ok.
    I’m a biggie for trying to live in the now. I don’t focus much on what was, nor what is to come. It could be in part because I don’t have many happy memories from my past. In fact, in my past I was always looking forward to the next big event in my life, or the next best thing.
    May God bless you richly with inexpressible joy and peace that passes all understanding Crystal.
    Love and blessings šŸ™‚ ā¤

    1. Thank you Staci for your kind words–it means a lot to me. I completely understand what you are saying. Ultimately, I think its best to move forward, live in the present and have hope for the future. I would say, right now in my life, I’m in a transition phase, where I don’t necessarily like where I’m at, so the past is a place where I was happy and free. I believe I will come to like the present and the past will be a fond memory, and not so much of a place I long to be.

      Many blessings to you Staci šŸ™‚

      1. Oh yes, I hear you. I’ve been in places where it’s just been so darn tough that I didn’t want to be in that place at all. I guess we can only really appreciate it after we come out of it. I’m sure you’ll come through with flying colors Crystal.
        Blessings. šŸ™‚ ā¤
