Rat Race

Twist and turn, ensconced within the sheets beneath
Grab hold of that soft pashmina, hide behind familiarity
Twist and turn and hide til for a split second comfort it'll bequeath
Savour that lie; as daylight breaks, head on shall you face reality
Tie your shoes, hold your breath and don't let the tears flow
You'll run the race, but you won't see the finish line
Just run and hide, try to escape, don't let your weakness show
They say past is past, but sometimes darkness clings like a vine

We must never permit the voice of humanity
within us to be silenced. It is Man's sympathy with all creatures that first makes him a Man.

--Albert Schweitzer

Everything can be taken from a man or a woman but one thing: the last of human freedoms to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.

--Viktor E. Frankl
