∙ᶔΐ everybody gotta pay the fare ΐᶓ∙

“Dream On”  Live 1994 Rio    Aerosmith

∙ᶔΐ ǂΨǂ ΐᶓ∙

i look in the mirror

but i don’t know

the person i see ~

like in a dream

i’m trapped inside

the woman

reflected back at me

∙ΐ∙

time won’t stop movin’

life goes on ’til it don’t

everybody gotta pay the fare…

one way or another

∙ΐ∙

i look in the mirror

who do i see?

is she wise

or just a fool?

did she live

her life in grace

or throw it all away?

∙ΐ∙

time won’t stop movin’

life goes on ’til it don’t

everybody gotta pay the fare…

one way or another

∙ΐ∙

i look in the mirror

and wonder ~

if  i get taken tomorrow

will my fare into Heaven

have been paid with good deeds

or will my reckless sins

only pay my fare to Hell?

∙ΐ∙

time won’t stop movin’

life goes on ’til it don’t

everybody gotta pay the fare…

one way or another

  1. the good news is we dont have to earn heaven, its a decision…smiles. and i dont look into mirrors…lol

  2. Dani — very nice!! ~~ I look in the mirror also – and what I see in the mirror and what I feel inside – many times are toooooo totally different people … I wonder — who are they? :-)

    • i haven’t looked like i feel in…..well, i’m not telling how long. thank you for your visit and sweet comment, Becca. ♥

  3. See your beautiful, intelligent, and loving self. You are goodness and love Dani. If there is a heaven, you will be there. Not now, not for a long, long time. I love you. xo

  4. Questions, questions…always questioning the self, what we see and what we wish to be and where we think we’re headed. I think we trap ourselves, in that way…we don’t know ourselves because we spend so much time worrying…and if it’s any consolation, I certainly can’t see you going where the hellfire’s stirring dani. Nice person like yourself should only have good things ahead.

    P.S. Thank you for all the kind words on my site, Dani – it always means so much that you take the time to read and to say the things you do. Touching, truly.

    • thank you, Chris! i appreciate your visits and kind comments. i wish i could get to everyone’s site every day, but i do try to catch up when i’m there. i love all of your writing, but your haiku lately have been stunning!

  5. i’m with bri – we don’t have and we can’t impossibly earn heaven – it’s a gift and only love will take us there..

    • it’s just what came into my imagination while listening to the song. {smile} i appreciate you visiting and commenting and i think love will create many miracles. ♥

i'd love to hear from you ♥ thanks! {comments must be approved before they are visible}
