The Next Thing

from The Next Thing by Color Theory



Both eyes on my goal
To be truly happy
I’ll devote my heart and soul
Through the thick and thin
Herald my arrival
Life can finally begin

Fully satisfied
For fifteen minutes
Sunlight on my face
The reaching of a dream
Then the bitter taste
The lack of purpose
Something else to do
I cross it off and move on to
The next thing

Anxious and depressed
Reckless and relentless 
Will life ever let me rest?
Stop and catch my breath
Take some to wonder why I’m
Racing to my death.
