THE SECRET TO LIFE

I will admit I feel confused-
By many articles and writings I have read.
The life people describe isn’t one that I have lived-
And the blessing is mine I guess.
I didn’t grow up in a world of us and them-
Or drawing a line between black and white.
Prejudice was simply a part of history-
That the world I knew agreed wasn’t right.
Maybe I lived in a box?
If so, I am glad that I did…
Because I never want to be like the world I hear about now-
With so much hatred spread.
I don’t care about your race or orientation-
I just care about what you do.
If you break the law or hurt someone…
The events that happened started with you.
I don’t care if your life is different than mine-
But I want my life left to me.
I am happy to respect your choices-
But respect is a two-way street you see.
Our job is not to judge each other-
But humans rarely see that right…
So let go of your judgments against others…
And the judgments against you might get light.
Color of skin doesn’t make you right-
And it doesn’t make you wrong.
Actions speak louder than anything-
So choose carefully the road you travel on.
This is not about sunshine and flowers-
As I am not a huge people fan…
I feel people suck in general-
But race and sex are not the problem with “man.”
Inconsiderate and selfish-
Those are the people I don’t get.
And when you can’t drive!!!!!
I really throw a fit.
I won’t tell you what to believe-
And I won’t tell you what to do…
It is people pushing personal logic-
Making the world harder for me and you.
Blessing and trials are different for all-
And empty promises are nothing new…
NOTHING in life is free!!!
So don’t let politicians fool you.
Instead be like Frozen…
And simply let it go!
Search for peace and a protective box…
THAT IS THE SECRET TO LIFE YOU KNOW!!
