Changing Direction

Rolling through the days
Trying to find my place
Establish myself in an
Unforgiving world
Making necessary changes
Paving my way
Cause I've turned from
The old, broken road
No longer willing
To keep circling 'round
I've set my focus ahead
Shedding fears, Shedding tears
Lightening my load
And in a few years
I'll be free to roam
No longer lost
I'll be found

    Dana, I "hear" another song there, maybe we should talk about a long-distance collaboration (joking!) I AM a musician. Classical. But some of your lines sound what I really LOVE--"Country"!

    1. Forgot: I'm taking a cue from you, responding briefly to each commentor on my own blog--it's fun, almost like beginning of conversation. THANKS!

Thank you for being that audience!
