When there are no words

I could say
that would be honest and make things better

or I could be honest and make things worse..

How much does one keep in?
It seems I just can't win.

I want to be all I can
but circumstances call for choices I don't want to be making.
And the past creeps in silently, filling me with dread-
is it all in my head?

Sometimes I think I care too much.
Then I'm convinced I'm heartless.
Decide for me? For you? For them?

I'm not sure how I do it.

I can want and wait at the same time.
Somethin' inside me tells me it's fate-
that if it's gonna happen, it won't be late.

Some think I lack ambition
but it just strive for such a different mission.
Some goals are all full of holes;

mine are in a whole new dimension.

I intend to be the best person I can be.
Taking life as it comes, without regret,
my words indelibly marked in your mind-
I won't waste your time.
The potential is fabulous, but you gotta grab at this
cuz the next second I'm walking
Can't understand just talking
Won't stand around gawking.

But my feet are the ones to move.
Shall I skip? Leap? Retreat?
Right now I'm just standin' still.
Proverbially tip-toeing 'round the tulips
til these two lips can utter will.
