Life, life, life

So many people confused about its clarity
Chasing the wind, not knowing its vanity.
They do this to destruction with stupidity.
How can we stop this insanity?
People trying to defy gravity
Always amassing, and never thinking of charity.

Well I am not a fan, nor care for popularity
I want to make a mark,
and not just be hailed like a celebrity.
Yeah, I want to be proud of my nationality,
Would like to have an impact on my locality,

Though I know its vanity,
I want to live it in its entirety.
Singing praises to the heavenly,
Till the day I’ll leave this earth to eternity.

Life, Life, Life.......

A lot that I see that makes it beautiful,
The flowers and trees they make it colorful.
The rivers, the ocean, the seas, make it wonderful.
The birds, they sing and fly make it joyful.

Because I want to see more of this I became prayerful,
So as not to lack, I became dutiful.
It breaks my heart to see tears, so I became merciful.
I stand aloof, in solitude, to get a chance to be thoughtful.
In all his I praise Jehovah, and I am thankful.
To the beat I dance and I am cheerful.
Don’t take it for granted I beg you.

If you are wise, you’ll be careful.
I know you are bitter, and tend to be vengeful,
Look at the sky, the sea, the birds they’ll calm you.
Whether you are good or bad, the sky will shed tears on you.
The seas wash your feet and cares not who you are.
If you so appreciate me, so says life,
Don’t hold on to pain for too long.
Free your mind from pain,
There is more to life, than just faking up reality.
