I'm trying to figure out my next move

and not enjoying the place I am now.

 

I'm trying to figure out the past

when I am in the present.

 

I'm trying to figure out the path

when I can look down and see it.

 

I'm trying to figure out how it works

without enjoying the process of learning.

 

I'm trying to figure out what they meant

instead of taking it at face value.

 

I'm trying to figure out those things I want to be

while I neglect who I already am.

 

I'm trying to figure out fifteen steps ahead

which puts me steps behind.

 

I'm trying to figure out

why I keep trying to figure it all out.

 

It's about right now, not the before and after.

Ah, I think I've figured it out.
