Catch the Keys

Holding the keys to reality

Digging through the day

I can see the gears turning

But also many heads

Turning far away

Best intentions crumpled up

and thrown away like trash

Humbled by a lack of interest

Discouraged by the cash

The lack of engagement

The lack of care

For basic humanity

At every level of society

It seems so hard to believe

*

Holding the keys to reality

Twisting through the day

I can hear the gears turning

But also wheels

Turning far away

Best intentions all mixed up

Miss the targets and crash

Jumbled by a lack of communication

Discouraged by the cash

The lack of engagement

The lack of care

For basic humanity

At every level of society

It seems so hard to believe

*

The door to the universe

Is opened by the keys to reality

We all have them on our chains

If we can get them free


Locked out by being close-minded

or expressing negativity

All we really need

Is optimistic vision

And total empathy


*

Turn the key to reality

Unlock each day and night

With calm optimism

And far-reaching empathy

*

WTF you say

Yah me too

It seems like hypocrisy!

Doing all that we can do

Watch a big screen show

See their views, you know

Empathy, Optimism

And buy a brand new day

Go as far down as we can go

Act with kindness

As far as we can stretch

You want the keys to reality?

Here!

Can you catch?

*

Told that the keys to reality

Are always with us through the day

We are the gears turning

But also timely hands

Turning far away

Best intentions thrown straight up

In hopes that you will catch

Fumbled by lack of synergy

Discouraged by no cash

The lack of engagement

The lack of care

For basic humanity

We all need optimism and empathy

What do you believe?
