Where are we headed?
What are we looking for?
Why all the discontent?
How do we stop this war?
This constant unending battle
Between the heart and mind
Taking its toll on the soul
With persistent forward and rewind
Never quite figuring out
What we are trying to find
No clue what we are running after
Or of what we are leaving behind
Life used to be beautiful
With something to look forward to
Everyday used to be wonderful
‘Cause each day brought something new
The cycle is still the same
Why doesn’t it bring us joy anymore?
Why do we question every single thing?
When did the magic go out the door?
I wish we could slow down
I wish we could just breathe
No more running or hiding
Not letting life seethe
Haven’t we had enough
Of all this worry and sadness
Can somebody please help find
The end to all this madness
Just existing isn’t going to cut it
Don’t let life be so vainly destroyed
This privilege that’s been given to us,
This journey should be (its meant ) to be enjoyed
I hope we find a way.
