Vital Force

What are you living for?

Your purpose should not be ignored

Seeking solid answers to unstable questions

Accepting life’s fate and mistakes for valuable lessons

Stability is a natural human need and the cause for greed

The back of our minds dream of peace and luxurious days

Yet we drown ourselves in self doubt and excuses for lazy ways

The existence we all share and tolerate possess reasons

Circling each other day after day and season after season

So crippled by our basic mortality and ignoring knowledge we should seek

Thirsting for beauty with the vanity of surgeries

Filling the holes of the empty words we speak

We’d rather be drunk on shots of lies than to breathe the honest truth

Destroying all of the progress built, ruining fruitful minds of our youth

Eliminate the deliberation that you’re life is an illusion full of confusion

We are broke buying into a life we know we cannot afford

Straighten your shirt and hold your head high for the occassion

What are you living for?
