There's No Blue in the Word

Nothingness - a place to rest
Free from pain - and worthlessness
Truth it hurts - but hurt ain't true
There's no blue in the worden blue

There's not truth in the lies we say
There's no work in the work we play
The only answer? - to be true
To do the good that you can do

Thinking all day - gathering facts
Doesn't matter - until we act
Actions tell us who we are
Thinking only goes so far

If we don't act - then we don't live
If we don't learn - to love and give
Give away - all that we crave
Helps us to - avoid the grave

Rediscover wonder when
You learn to unlearn what you can
Unlearn all you thought you knew
Then see the world as babies do

Enemies might become friends
Meanings shift, begin and end
Passions in and out of mind
Through it all please do be kind
