See the World
poetic scribble by Bob Axell 2009

 

They try to fly and they all die
A million times
They tried and fried in chairs up high
A billion times

They try so hard yet lie in lard
A trillion times
They rise and slice their foes like ice
A zillion times

Yet they will never get nowhere
Get there when they all just stare
Stare ahead and let life pass
Waiting by the hourglass

Walk right past with hate to eye
Hate in their eyes they walk with pride
They don't slow down or step aside
They walk right on until they collide

With the eventual wall standing there tall
Blocking the free air making them fall
Yet they all stumble back up on their feet
And they don't ever, admit they've been beat

So they attack the wall again with all that they've got
Bash their fists so bloody and they all suffer a lot
And in the end them and their friends end up in the same spot
Where flames rise high and lifes pass by and the weather is so hot

Some of the people miss the wall with just inches to spare
And they keep walking through their life with limits everywhere
But right infront of them it seems the road is always clear
Around the world they walk with words no human dares to bare
