Poetry Friday: Through by Jimmy Eat World

November 4th, 2016 (06:00 am)

Current Mood: determined
Current Song: Through by Jimmy Eat World

Slow things down, baby, check your motives
You sleep at night and stand up straight
Keep in mind there's a big, big difference
Between letting go and running away

Look around
That's not me
Not one shred of who I'll be
You don't know know what I do
The one way getting out is through

- from the song Through by Jimmy Eat World from the album Integrity Blues

The "one way getting out is through" reminds me of the Rodney Atkins song that says "If you're going through hell, keep on going, don't slow down, if you're scared don't show it..."

I sang that song lots in the last few weeks!

Similar to the line from A Certain Slant of Light by Laura Whitcomb: http://slayground.livejournal.com/474793.html
