Wanting To Be Simple

Written by: Joel Lee

Just wanna be simple
How complicated have I become?
Learning forever to tackle
When is life for myself I’m appointed to run?

Always there be something new
A no one to wanna bother the old
Have you an age to once more feel?
Whence a simple age to simply enfold

Rather might I choose to be complicated
A complication without simplicity
Rather be valid or validated?
Have I not a simplicity for complexity?

To be known is to be unknown
Giving a chance for a self be quarantined
Much of distrust to mistrust shown
A lead as misleading as a faithful dream

Asking to be simple
Where complications I cannot outrun
Forever learning to tackle
Have I that simplicity to once more become?
