Sum Of Us

Everybody copes —

one prays, one mopes.

Another spends their time shooting dope.

Everybody dies —

one of the natural , one from the lies.

Another finds the way to commence suicide.

Everybody has a pain —

one is the physical, one is whom they blame.

Another uses it to maintain.

Everybody lives —

one takes, one gives.

Another purges themselves of their sins.

Everybody has a choice —

one is wise, one destroys.

Another listens to someone else’s voice.

Everybody could give it all to the Lord —

all contentment, all discord —

but we find the price more than we can afford.
