We walk on that yellow brick road…
Hoping for something greater to show us our soul.
We try, and dig deep – but in thoughts we are lost…
the who, what, when…it’s true; ignorance is our cross.
There is no manual, no how to guide –
Just life’s rich tapestry…the roller-coaster ride.
“NO! I AM THE WIZARD, THE WIZARD OF OZ!”
“KNEEL BEFORE ME IF YOU DESIRE APPLAUSE!”
“Only I can show you how to live – only I can tell you what you need to give! To possess a life that truly matters, you must be selfish – and help those in tatters! Love those closest, and the strangers too! Always work TOO hard – and find time for play too! Invest, and splurge – be safe, and dangerous! Live every second, and take some days off!”
“Oh, you’re confused – then welcome to life! Don’t try, and understand…just live it, and love it…till the day that you die.”
Yeah, well that’s all well, and good – but what about global warming, and all of that stuff? The sad polar bears, and my bills…man, it’s tough. What about pensions, and purpose? What about oil, and who is the president? What about if I’ll have kids, or how I will afford rent? What about keeping in trend, you know – fashion, and stuff – what about following my passion, but helping those sleeping rough…what about expressing my view –
“STOP! I’ve heard enough! FUCK, YOU!
You live life by looking in front,
examining everything…from left to right…
all the while, missing out…on the truly beautiful sight.”
