The American Dream?

The moment comes when you realize
You’ve walked through pain, believed the lies.

And you did it with sincerity –
You trusted wrong security.

Your life seemed great, you did what they said –
You understood you’d soon be dead.

So you had to make things right –
You listened, never questioned, you followed with pride.

The “American Dream” – the american life –
But what if someone pulled out a knife –

And killed you in this moment, now –
Would you say you truly lived somehow?

Would the people you know say you truly lived?
That you saw this life as a gift?

Or would they say, you lived a lie –
You hardly took the time to say “hi”?!

What would leave behind?
Were you numb – or were you kind?

How many people have you touched –
Were you able to inspired much?

Are you who you want to be –
Are you able to set your spirit free?

Or are you stuck inside your mind
Living for the future, to the present blind?

So with these questions asked –
And knowing that life may not last –

What are you going to do today?
Will you live life in your own, unique way?
