Line in the Sand

house.

Some people like to look for things they will never find…
So concerned with their current situational bind…
A form of neurotic compulsion that poisons the mind…
And stands in the way of your being kind…

What’s this obsession with the things you don’t own…
Living your life-like a remote-controlled drone…
Why is it a requirement that once you are grown…
You profess your love with a worthless fucking stone…

This is not a requirement, it is not a goal…
Sounds like something we learned from a troll…
Parents taught you it’s one of life’s little tolls…
Most of you might as well be buried in a hole…

Time to draw a curved line in the sand…
Seeds in your pocket and shovel in hand…
It’s ok to live and be one with the land…
And recognize that life can be immensely grand…

      Thank you for the compliment! I really haven’t thought of selling any of my paintings, I would probably have to ask my girlfriend… That sure sounds lame…
