Progress

Moving through confusion
Moving through the breeze
Between the crowded minds
That walk the city streets

Avoiding hope and vision
Avoiding common change
Traveling the darkened road
Wondering if indifference guides their way

Trying to break away from stagnant fear
Hoping one day to sail the open sea
Losing ground while others follow
In the footsteps of thoughts set free —
Distrusting their gut feeling
Not taking the forbidden risk
Unlike many before who tried
And jumped ahead in steady stride

Running around in circles
Running around unclear
Searching for the open door
To let their dreams appear

Not wanting what they’ve seen
Not liking what they’ve read
Trying to light the darkened road
Wondering if progress lies far ahead…
