Restless - Switchfoot

Restless by Switchfoot would best explain what i'm feeling right now
thoughts are in a mess
i have much to say
but not much time
to sit, to waste

*

i am the thorn stuck in your side
i am the one that you left behind
i am the dried up, doubting eyes
looking for the well that won't run dry


*

stray
like i don't belong
like this world is all i cling on
like i know exactly what's wrong

i don't
want to be the person
i've always feared to be
to run away from my everything

*


we are Hosea's wife
we are squandering this life
using people like ladders and words like knives


i am Hosea's wife,
i am squandering this life
i use people like ladders and words like knives


*

All Time Low by The Wanted also seems like the case right now
except the line, "praying won't do it"
because going back to God is what i do
and it's what liberates me from the normalities of this world.
(normalities isn't a word, is it?)

*

the new semester, being my first semester officially in degree, has been somewhat crazy
(precision of language, please [The Giver reference, ignore])
it started of somewhat calm and free
and then the assignments piled on
paired with holidays
and then the drive to complete them being at approximately 0.01%
we've felt the rush of 2 assignments, 3 assignments due on the same day
most due dates were pushed back and we were allowed to breathe a sigh of relief
because even when i completed my assignments, i wasn't sure if they were up to par

nevertheless, i thank God for bringing me through
for being my strength,
for giving me grace.
i honestly do not know how i could have make it this far


*

well yeah, i can't fully express myself right now
i've got work to do
hopefully i'll find the time(and get in the mood) to blog during the 1 week break next week
counting down to being home kills me softly
i really want to be home right now

God bless you!
