- What Matters
Sometimes, we are hanging ;
between two peaks of ordinary life and ability.
And we lose the rope, the track, the way ;
We leave, we stop and try just not to move away.
Hanging between ;
We don't bridge towards ability, nor back to the start ;
We just lead a dead life, leaving all of the art.
Sometimes we are on a ship, facing a storm ;
When goals aren't so far;
Where winds blow pleasant and warm.
We don't turn and pass the storm;
And just leave the compass pointing hope.
But it makes no sense to just leave the ship;
and let it wreck turn to a hulk;
and wait for archeologists to explore the talents in bulk.
Sometimes after such a dead life ;
A person must remember the abundance in him.
Again lifting the compass of hope ;
Again learning to grapple the rope.
He should move to infinity ;
And the peak of ability.
At some time we have to kill the already dead within;
We should enlight ourselves ;
And search for the form of life within.
We have all got a point in livin'; though different.
We all have to sail to the island;
That is just a sight away.
We all have to bridge to the peak;
That is just a might away.
Sometimes on the way, we lose the path ;
Don't worry 'cause you are infinite.
If you lose the rope to the peak ;
Make one by your own might.
