ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT
WE SEEK PLEASURE AND DELIGHT
YET DO WE TRUELY SEEK WHAT IS RIGHT
ONLY THY HEAVENLY FATHER'S WISDOM CAN ANSWER THIS
TIS WISE FOR A SOUL NOT TO FADE INTO THE DARK'S ABYSS
DOST NOT EVERY SOUL SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS?
TIS WHERE CAN THIS JOY BE FOUND?
WHO DOST HAVE THE ANSWER COULD FIND IT PROFOUND
TIS SEEM MANY FIND IT IN DRUGS MOMENTARILY


YET ONE HAS TO ASK DOST THIS ESCAPE FIND THE FLESH'S GRAVE WITHIN THE CEMETARY
TIS SOME THAT FIND IT IN A LOVELESS SEX
BUT ONE HAS TO ASK DOES THIS LEAD TO A WOUND WITHIN A HEART BECOMING A VEX
TIS SOME FIND IT IN THE GATHERING OF MATERIAL THINGS
DOST THOSE BELONGINGS BECOME WORN,TORN AND TATTERED NO LONGER GIVING ONE'S SOUL SHING
UPON WHICH ALL OF THIS I HAVE CONTEMPLATED
LEAVING ME WITH THE QUESTION HAVE WE FOUND HAPPINESS CONTAMINATED
TIS NOW MY INNER SOUL THAT SEARCHES FOR SOLUTION
WISHING TO REMOVE THE THINGS OF POLLUTION
LEAVING ME WITH THE THOUGHTS WHAT IS THE ANSWER TO THIS LIFE'S MYSTERY
PERHAPS IT IS FOUND IN ONE'S INNER CREATIVITY
TIS HOW CAN WE FIND JOY'S LONGIVITY?
WHEN EVERYTHING AROUND US SUGGEST NEGATIVITY?
HAVE WE ALL BECOME SO BLEAK THAT WE CAN NO LONGER EXPRESS OURSELVES IN THE ARTS OF POSITIVITY?
DOST NOT EVERYTHING HAVE AN OPPOSITE?
PERHAPS ONE SHOULD SEEK THE GOOD SIDE OF THOSE FOR A BETTER DAY'S COMPOSITE
