When?

How do you know when to fight for something you really want, and when to just let it go? How do you know when you've reached that fine line between "worth it" and "not worth it anymore"?

When do you stop listening to what your heart is screaming and start listening to what your head has been quietly droning on about? And why do they always seem at odds with each other?

Perhaps, when you reach the point where your heart just hurts so much you want to rip it out of your chest and throw it against something, maybe that's when its time to listen to your head. Then again, maybe it's because you were listening to your head that your heart hurts so much.

And now my head hurts....

Yellow-Bellied Ne'er-Do-Well

If I started walking right now
I'd be home for dinner
Maybe that 15 mile hike
Would help me come to terms with things
Or at least come to a course of action
Either is good
I get jealous of those
Who can just drop everything and run
When things get tough
When you've spent your whole life living up to responsibility
Turning tail and slinking out the back door
Is braver than sticking around
And mucking through the ever-growing pile of shit around you
