Journey of self-discovery (Thinkstock photos/Getty Images)

The past few years have been strange indeed
She thinks on why she still never flew free?
Life for her has been a ride of ups and downs
With her being the jester, the unfunny clown

Some money did she have for a future to be
Not much was it, but it would’ve set her free
But a sucker for a sad story, she lent some away
A few years later, she’s waiting for it till this day

Out of work she is too and in no rush to get back
For enthusiasm of the boring work does she lack
She’s drifted from job to job most of her life
But a future is now her desire for which she strives

There’s so much out there even in this crazy world
For someone like her, a mixed up mad arse girl
She’s re-inventing herself in so many ways
Courses and all sorts to have better days

Whatever she does though, she’s sure it’ll be wrong
To those that belittle her and have for so long
But if she stays put and does nothing at all
Then sure as hell she knows she’s gonna fall

But alone she feels with no-one giving a damn
So much in her life she wants to cram
Tick tock beats father time on his drum
Better decide before the reaper has his fun…
