I have to say I'm quite annoyed,
As life flies true and fast,
That selfish thoughts can still avoid
My conscious mind's repast.
Can't humor stay and sit awhile?
Won't dreams slow down and play?
It's fun things I'd rewind and file
If only to convey
That life's ambition, lost or won,
Is meaningless to me,
But music, laughter would be fun
And last eternally.
