its a fair exchange
there is no robbery there,
we are all in a foot race,
to get to the same end.
that we can live this life forever.
I am just happy to be here,
most of the time.
but there are far to many other places that I would rather be.
other things that I would rather be doing.
yet this is what I have chosen.
living with all of the things that I have out grown,
or have simply just worn out.
it is really all the same to me,
if I really take the time to think about it all,
no matter what it is that I am really doing,
I am still finding myself wishing that I was doing something else.
the days comer and go in there endless procession,
bringing us all along with it,
as if we had a choice in the matter.
we all try to find something novel,
to help keep it all interesting.
yet it all still passes much to quickly,
taking with it,
any measure that we might find some degree of happiness.
today is the only day that we have to live,
because it all comes and goes so quickly.
it is the way that it has always been,
and I doubt if it is ever going to change
I am ready to believe that it will,
but I am not sure when.
and life takes away.
fair exchange is no robbery,
if you believe it.
