A new divide I created within, to make sense of the infinite futility that lies inside…

Life 101

So hard with effort, we strain, we try
To stand up tall, gain a balance of life
One by one, the cautious steps we take
Always wary of what lies ahead

Bit by bit, we learn to live,
To cope, with so many things
A life long struggle, one never ending
Can’t give up even if we want to

From day one, learn this, learn that
Our minds are forcefully expanded,
If you fuck up once, you are a fuck up for life
One universal lesson for the kids
The pathway to a life with no choice

We build it up, we learn to climb
The rungs rusted with time,
We try to take time, a pause just to rest,
To give some peace to this restless head
But no, no time to rest, we got to climb
Up above the rest

Higher and higher, leave the ground below
Refusing to fall, giving it our all
For something we don’t really want
On and on, it never stops, lost sight of the ground
On and on, around in a vicious circle
Do you know where we are headed?
Do you know when we will stop..

To take time, a pause just to rest,
To regain control and catch our breathe
To give some peace to this restless head
But no, no time to rest, we got to climb
Up above the rest

So we reached the ‘top’, is this it?
Where are all the things they said we will find?
Empty above, empty below
Was it worth the climb?
Tell me was it worth the time?
