With each unremarkable day
my moorings are losing their grip,
I feel myself slipping away

the fibers are starting to fray
as I disconnect from the slip
with each unremarkable day

and drift towards the unending gray.
Most think it a lighthearted quip
'I feel myself slipping away'

but it's truer than I care to say
while forfeiting starch from my lip
with each unremarkable day

and trying my best to belay
this less-than-enjoyable trip.
I feel myself slipping away

and though I would much rather stay
my vessel has begun to dip--
with each unremarkable day
I feel myself slipping away.

My memories leave me hollow
like the crumbling shell that stands
a monument to shallow
sycophants with greedy hands

there's no one more complacent
than a fool who's satisfied
until they lie adjacent
to the rest who never tried.

There are those who hang on every word you say
and some that wish you would just go away
I seem to be meeting the latter today

so graciously I shall desist
from asking if you get my gist
and humbly as I can -- exist.

I'm just another car
in a long unending line
that never gets too far
we're governed by design

I put on my face
to enter the race
then pray for my portions of gravy and grace
and though I may tire
I will face the fire
or risk the demise of my one true desire
