There is the dream
The one that lasts forever
You learn it when you’re young
And you hold on to it till you die
It’s the dream that you will make a difference
That life will change because you were born unto this earth
And you believe it!
So you put your plan into action
It seems so simple at first
Go to school
Obey your elders
And follow the rules
But somewhere along the way you realize
That maybe the path splits and you have to make a decision
Which way to go? Damn it.
You make the decision and it plays out.
Was it right for you?
Only time will tell.
For you see there is no perfect life.
There is only being.
And life goes on till the end.
