I was traveling down the path I wanted to be on
Writing diligently
My hand reaching out and finding the words
That my soul longed to speak

Then something stirred inside of me
Perhaps it was spring fever
I cannot sit long enough to compose
One cohesive sentence
Or finish one thought

My legs are on the move
Pushing me outside
I have a strong desire to soak in the sunshine
Breathe in the fresh air

Before I had a craving to write
A deep rooted feeling that I could not shake
Until I put pen to paper and wrote it out of me

That voice is still their
But she is much quieter these days
The louder voice is saying "jump on your bike"
And I do just that

I need to find balance
Between writing and riding

~~ I miss you guys ~~
