"I am Happy to The Point of Fear" -Ralph Waldo Emmerson

I am a drifter...
I wander, I wonder,
I search and I wish,
I hope and I ponder

i spend my life dreaming,
I spend my life waiting,
I spend my nights waking,
My daytime debating

I am sick and I'm well,
I am empty and whole,
I am strong and I'm weak,
I am hopeless with goals,

I am a drifter...
I find my way through the harm...
I float... And I wander...
but I always drift back into your arms.
