circles are everywhere

And the seasons, they go round and round,
And the painted ponies go up and down.
We're captive on the carousel of time.
We can't return, we can only look
Behind from where we came,
And go round and round and round in the circle game.

- Tom Rush, "The Circle Game"

What a horrible poem. So basically according to Tom Rush, what is forward is actually repeating the past? ... should one choose to look forward of course. Else, one looks back and just observes. The whole idea of being stuck on something is just so fundamentally offensive to my senses. We're not stuck on anything! Life is a tapestry that we weave.. and we can weave it in any bloody way that we want. The end result no matter what the critics say while you're weaving the god damned thing, is always as beautiful as it is pointless.
