IT’S THE SAME OLD STORY

It’s the same old story –

We need to change –
But change requires internal freedom –
So, instead, we make a futile attempt to change ourselves
By changing others.

But this never works.

So,
Since we can’t change in that way –
Or find the guilty party because the “crime” was committed so long ago –
We believe we might one day be saved –
By somebody else.

It’s the same old story –

We’ve lost all true meaning in our lives –
Can’t find it – even under our fingernails –
Nor can we buy it, join it,
Drive it,
Or even, marry it.

We believe,
If we ever encounter true meaning,
Face to face,
Our ego might suddenly “blow up” and disappear forever –

So, instead, we postpone any true meaning –
And try, for awhile,
To get along without it.
