So has our world become
Captivated are our souls
Immersed in a yearn for a material diversion
Our heart hungers for spiritual nutrition
Time flies,floates away like a coarse river
There was a time when we were the masters of our time
Think of all we got
We might not even know we have it
Throbbing heartbeat
A constant reminder that our clock is ticking

We try to sit in more than one chair
Even tries to eat ourselves more than full
Estranged we have become
We do not control our own time anymore
Nor our lifes
Trusting that our material prosperity makes us happy
I wonder which day we wake up
And realizes..,we have fooled ourselves
Or maybe we already did
it just passed us right by

    Deep thoughts, Arild. Estranged is the perfect description for what so many of us are in these modern days. We are estranged from the universe!
