REALITY

You start out with hopes and dreams
To create art is the purpose and way
Life does not evolve as first it seems
Hopes and dreams go somehow astray

Dreams are replaced by reality
And nature does take its course
Soon there is a wife and family
Their welfare is the driving force

Soon you become a common man
Work for money and drive a car
You lie upon the sand to get a tan
Absorbing rays from the nearest star

The ancient ocean used to compel you
To contemplate existence as a whole
But the reality of life will soon tell you
You must act out your existing role

So why exist here in the first place?
The question you asked since day one
It is to be a member of the human race
And to enjoy the warmth of the sun
