ELEVEN THREE TWENTY-TWENTY
I see myself as strong enough.
Gotta put some stuff down to be around long enough...
Cuz me and God know what HE put in me
To share with you for our souls' surgery.
But why me
And why not
And how?
Do I step up and preach HIS message profound?
This US in frenzy and stress
This ancient and terrible mess.
On guard to take further a cause
Entrenched in fault finding and laws.
No focus
Just slinging of mud
To prove ouselves righteous...
To prove ouselves better...
This fighting FOREVER???
COMMON WEALTH.
COMMON GOOD.
FORGIVENESS.
TOLERANCE.
PATIENCE.
AN AGENDA THAT CURES.
Heal what hurts.
Enact what helps.
Do what solves.
What's really good?
There is no 1 answer...
No 1 party...
No 1 organization...
No 1 way to feel or be or know...
Just let ego go.
We CAN have it ALL.
We have the answers.
We're standing in our own way.
-The Tangent
