Where is security

Where is security?

You say you want security
Where the hell do you find this?
You want life to be beautiful
But life’s the way it is
One never knows what might happen
We could be dead tomorrow
Or everything within your days
It could end up in sorrow.

There are no guarantees, my friends
Nobody knows at all
What might happen in the future?
Who knows you well might fall
But that’s the great adventure
You have to live your life
Experiencing the all of it
The good stuff and the strife.

So live your life right now, today
And take a look within
Drop those horror thoughts you have
Let the symphony begin
Destiny is destiny
You can’t do naught about it
But live for now, and not tomorrow
This will help you quite a bit.

    I guess security is living without fear. Like the famous quote. We've nothing to fear but fear itself. Wonderful reaffirmation of the spirit of living Peter. Good on ya mate. :) Sorry. :) It's like going down south and talking with a southern drawl. Peace. :)
