I find myself a little frazzled tonight.
There's a looming awareness of deadlines and time.
A ghost from my past is visiting New York.
And the city itself seems to have stopped moving.
At this awkward stance on a halted life, I've had a lot of time to think.
As I grow older, I realize my tastes have changed.
And while others grow into their roles of responsibility,
I become increasingly anxious of following my set schedule.
I can't help but wonder where 2009 will take me.
But maybe, that's how everyone thinks at the dawn of a new year.
Either way, I know I can't hide from the world forever.
I might not always have a smile on my face,
but I'm sure that life this year will bring many surprises, schedules and all.
