Some people's experience of life is different than others, but all have to go through some experience to live it.

Some are born with a golden spoon in their mouth

And some ready the silver bullet

Some only see everything heading south

Torn to treasure or trace the minute


Some shred the need for paper

Of any kind or sort and live free

Others are life shapers

In torrents of life they battle a slimy sea


Some are pushed to trade gold for silver

While some trade silver for any cheap alloy

Some are here to stand and deliver

Some trade every emotion of any joy


Some lose and win at the same time

Winning late what they thought lately lost

Then losing what made it all worthwhile

A lifetime spend of line need not be crossed.


And while some never see it coming, the good news

The bad news is always around the corner

Yet they will smile as they amuse

That sober, they’re still more the drunk and stoner


With wrinkles on people’s face

Every line showing a news story

That there was a job they needed to pace

That spread dread or glory


While some didn’t get to so many things

They still heard about it in other people’s words

Some wish they’d move the move of kings

Knowing that while here, it hurts.
