I come out of the trance
Still wanting to dance
I don’t want to go back
To the life that plagues me.
I want to stay in the night
Where everything’s alright.
I know this can’t last forever
But even still
I’d like to believe it will.
And I’d like to spend
Just a little more time there.
When things aren’t going as you’d like
It’s easy to turn to vice
Just to try and make living this life
A bit easier to deal with.
And who could blame anyone?
You could still do alright.
But at the end of the night
You may lay awake
And wonder what might.
What might have been
Had you not spent all your time
Chasing a dream
That could never come true
Spent your time
Working on you.
To have that epiphany
That life changing realization
These are the moments that move our lives forward
And bring it creation
Although these moments of clarity
When you can see your life, and feel the universe
There’s no one you’d rather be meeting
And once it vanishes
Just smile and move on
Because if you stare too long
It’ll be gone
This is the light that never dies
And here is where the heart of life lies.
“And when the event, the big change in your life, is simply an insight – isn’t that a strange thing? That absolutely nothing changes except that you see things differently, and you’re less fearful and less anxious and generally stronger as a result: isn’t it amazing that a completely invisible thing in your head can feel realer than anything you’ve experienced before? You see things more clearly and you know you’re seeing them more clearly. And it comes to you that this is what it means to love life, this is all anybody who talks seriously about God is ever talking about. Moments like this.”
-Jonathan Franzen. The Corrections.
She never appreciates it when you don’t live your fullest
She’ll hit you with a wrath of fire
To live your purpose is all she asks
Even though it is the grandest task.
I feel we have a soul [sole] purpose
What that is we need to find
This is the first part of your life
I’m not sure what you had in mind.
Living from one fleeting pleasure to the next?
Perhaps a little bit of sex?
Anything to keep your mind off the intuition
Because that is the part that tells the truth.
But it’s not easy
It requires self-discipline
It requires the delaying of pleasures
But the ones that come later
Always end up so much greater.
Without these, everything we do becomes disillusion
And always results in mass confusion
We wonder where we went wrong
But we dare not look at the most obvious
Because that has been our entire life.
The concept of girls can be so easy to fall in love with
What they could do for you
What they could represent
Who this new one could be
And how she could act
How good the sex could feel
The illusions get built up in our heads
And this can become an addictive cycle
Because reality could never live up to fantasy
So once the fantasy is burst
It’s time to move onto the next
A world lived in our heads is so much easier than a world lived in reality
