“C” Inspiration: “Collide” by Howie Day.
Mid-summer before second year,
Driving hours with my life in boxes.
Ready to claim life as my own.
We arrive at dusk and you bring the beer.
The country air removed of toxins.
I’m here to take on the unknown.
Three ladies unpack my belongings
Sharing stories, jokes and laughter
Drinking the night away together.
We all wake in the morning
Hung-over and feeling like disasters.
We hug, departing ways until September.
That weekend I stood at the precipice
Of change and something greater.
I was standing so close to a great divide.
Have you heard of “Collide”? (Since it is in my all-time favorites list, I’ll pretend not to be hurt if not.) Is there a song that represents a changing time in your life?
