This Life


By Angela Kempe


The rain keeps falling

The wind is gonna blow

The sun keeps shining

And you won’t even know


The moon keeps phasing

like the ocean tide

While you stand there waiting

Till all the leaves have dried


While you get older

Another soul is born

Someone is celebrating

But go ahead and mourn


Children want what you have

But you want childhood back

While everything is white

All you focus on is black


Somebody’s leaving

And somebody’s come

And when you think that you’re smart

You find out that you’re dumb


They want what you have

And you want some more

Maybe instead of sulking

You should be grateful for

This life
