just turn to stone

journeys that can take you far
usually come as less than a surprise
soft curves happen in everybody’s road
turns of a sharper sort can cause a personality shift
taking the road less travelled can do the same
unless you saw that coming a long way off
right this second it seems you are not here
not that here is the best place to be or anything
the ability to leave has been removed from your choices
occassions of restlessness are not usually ended like this
solid and sturdy and sleeping like a rock but
turning from human to a piece of solid earth is
only one way to show where you are at
nobody can escape the things they do to themselves
empty your thoughts and clear your mind
