Live because you can

Like reflections of the sun’s sparkle in a summer pool at quiet time
Our thoughts are sparks of Creation across the holes of our mind
All life is energy moving exploring going seeking to find
It is with the passions of our hearts that our soul’s character is defined

When facing death by nature our prejudices become blind
What was once intolerable you really no longer mind
For before nature’s wrath we are all meek humankind
Forget hate embrace tolerance there’s been enough signs

The truth is simply you are who you are and always been
A pattern of sparks a soul traveling a path of patterned whens
Like the duality of the cosmic All there was goodness and sin
The only reason you need to live is because you can

There’s messages written in the food you eat
Prophetic warnings flow in rye and wheat
Even in despair there are those who lie n cheat
There will be a moment when everything won’t buy another heartbeat

In that moment just who will you be
When any when is everywhere to be seen
Suspended there truth laid bare in the in-between
Why are you there where have you been

The truth is simply you are who you are and always been
A pattern of sparks a soul traveling a path of patterned whens
Like the duality of the cosmic All there was goodness and sin
The only reason you need to live is because you can

Did you respect the Universe created for you to explore
Did you find another soul to love and to adore
With all that you had did you still want even more
But nature’s wrath can make the rich like the poor

Nature has electromagnetic pulses across the moist oceans of air
Who’s to say with lightening a thought wasn’t really there
In that moment in-between your soul in truth laid bare
Up down all around only you and God are there

The truth is simply you are who you are and always been
A pattern of sparks a soul traveling a path of patterned whens
Like the duality of the cosmic All there was goodness and sin
The only reason you need to live is because you can
