The Three Travellers in a Body

Today I stood Me in front of a mirror
And invited Myself for a talk

There we all stood for a minute or two
...looking at each other... and into each other
Searching... appreciating... criticising

Hey guys, thiz wassup ... I initiated the chat
Time has come for us to set some things right
Here we stand in a reality that has proven its determination to evolve
Our priorities must hence be put through a referendum 
...that is if they are to stand a chance to crystallize in the realities ahead
Me wants a life of luxury and delight
Myself wants a life of philanthropy to my kind
I want triumph and greatness in life
Somewhere we must draw the line

All our dreams are possible if we form an alliance
And if all our dreams we position in the order of achievement
One at a time... each in a predetermined line
We shall focus our attention, resources and efforts...
...on that goal which is best favoured by the present time
This I assure you, Me and Myself
Will ensure our success
Our organisation will leave no room for any dream to rot with mould
For if we sit, analyse and prioritize
No efforts will be wasted in futility

Remember that this is life
...and in life everything is precise
You cannot twist the arm of time
...and you cannot bend the lane of fate
In life nothing ever arrives a moment late

So I say, Me and Myself
Let’s sit at a round table and agree to work as one
For it is only when we exist in harmony 
...that we shall each wear the crown of glory
All of us have in us the dream of life with ease
All of us know in life nothing comes out of a mere wish
Efforts must precede the wish if it is to crystallize in the realm of real

Now here we are
Three travellers in one body
Here we stand at the crossroads of fate
Whichever lane we take bound to arrive at destiny
For sure we cannot take all roads at once
So I suggest, let’s put our ends in a line
Let’s start by following a route the end nearest from where we stand
For I believe thence we shall find the means to reach the other ends with ease
