The Gathering

My journey is long
My path is so wide
I've met many souls
In which to confide

I've seen many scenes
I've done lots of stuff
I've walked varied roads
Both easy and tough

I've soaked in the sun
I've cried in the rain
I've basked in some glory
And ached in some pain

I've trembled in fear
And stood solid ground
I've felt human love
When it gathered around

I fell to my knees
At the thought of the end
I raised my hands high
To ask for amends

I've broken the chains
Of the bondage of life
I sought education
And married my wife

I can't say I've never
Looked back in regret
But I keep looking forward
To what happens next

The world is a garden
An orchard. A feild
We must learn to love
All the things that it yeilds

One bad apple
Doesn't spoil the bunch
If it did, we wouldn't
Have apples for lunch

I have much to say
To the world in my realm
My mind is a maelstrom
And I'm at the helm

I think that there's more
To this thing we call life
Some have their fortune
And others have strife

But how would it be
If we could exchange
Could we handle their pleasures
Could they handle our pains

Life is an edict
That's been handed down
The poorest are humble
The richest are clowns

But they rule our world
With their gold coated hands
And expect us to live
By their every demand

With their hand in our pocket
We're held by our throat
They're asking us, "Now,
Just how do you vote"?

We have the right
To choose who they say
Will be voted in
At the end of the day

But where is the peace
And where is the love
Where is the life
That we're dreaming of

Alas poor Urich
The future is here
The day is approaching
That we all must fear

The inquest remains
To determine our fate
Let's hope it's not based
On a world filled with hate

Let's learn to live
And let's learn to love
So we can all gather
In Heaven above

Rockman   :-)
