The Merry-Go-Round

I like to think I am a happy person most days, but today I am harboring some anger that I thought would be best expressed through an image and a haiku  (I found the image on pinterest).

Not only am I angry, but today I am seeking patience—a trait I do not possess. I am ready for a change. I am ready to move on. My dreams are overflowing from my mind to my notebook and to conversations with friends and family, but I feel stuck in one phase—a phase that is not allowing me to move forward.

I try to explain to myself that this is where I need to be, but I feel like I am wasting my time…wasting my talent. There must be something more fullfilling waiting for me.

Merry-go-round creeps.
I wait for the motion to stop—
New horizons.

Although I have a wonderful family and very supportive friends, I feel like I am surrounded by darkness. In this darkness I can see the changes I want to happen, but the changes are not moving out of the darkness. It’s like those dreams are whirring by and waiting for their time to come.

“In a dark time, the eye begins to see.”

-Theodore Roethke

Do you ever feel stuck in a phase of life that you just want to be over?
