Two lost Souls.

We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl,
year after year,
running over the same old ground,
what have found,
the same old fears,
wish you were here.
Pink Floyd - Wish you were here. (1975)

I found myself hating myself, getting up in the morning, pulling on my work boots, climbing into the same pair of dirty jeans, traveling to a different factory or building site that looked exactly the same as the one I worked at last week, wearing the same welding shield I wore yesterday and the year before that. I found myself hating the air I breathed with its mix of burning gases and electrical energy. I even found myself hating the mug that I used for drinking the same brand coffee I have drunk for years. Yes I had some laughs, but they became exceptions. I was going over the same old ground, memories of my life ahead a lost soul in a fish bowl needing to escape, needing a different landscape, a different path. So here I am, same old fears but with a few new ones as well.
