If you find yourself in constant dismay
About your life, the world at large or simply **** today
You have two paths to walk and one ends colorless and grey
You sat and did nothing,  but had plenty to say.

What is that contribution that you speak?
Being in tune with the news and the daily beat?
Have you tuned out so that you could actually hear?
The connection is deafening and you walk away filled with fear.

So make you choice now or accept your fate
Right now is the only thing that is certain and safe.
But if you prefer to project life beyond the now
There will be a time when you will realize the answer to the question:

There are those who speak and inspire
That's good and fine
But can you call the actions of others your own
Or can I call them mine?
You need to make something from nothing
You need to blow your mind
Or else you're wasting air
And you're wasting you're own time.
