Lies, Lies and More Lies

We are all so self-deluded,
we think we know what’s right,
it seems we’re bred believing
more toys will make us all right.

We devote our lives to making money
all else takes second place,
then wake up one day to discover
our focus’ been badly misplaced.

Looking back the answer was obvious
if we’d a stopped and thought it through
but we got so busy earning a living
that our thinking got befuddled, askew.

We bought what the world was selling
and wanted to be like everyone,
it takes courage to be your own person
and walk to the beat of your drum.

Perhaps the moral of the story
is those that laugh last laugh loudest,
more toys won’t bring you pleasure,
toys are what kids cry to get.

So the choices are really quite simple
grow up and think like a man,
living like spoiled little children
leaves us behaving like only kids can.

Let’s remember Satan crawls on his belly,
the Sovereign Ruler took away his legs,
and your vantage point isn’t good when you’re prostrate
and living with snakes in the dregs.

And God gives second chances,
and this world we’re just passing through,
eternity lasts forever
so let’s start thinking anew.

The key to not being deluded
is knowing what’s true, what’s not
then applying truth to your behavior
and being amazed at the freedom you got!

About menmourningmoments

I'm happily married, the Father of 2 sons and 2 daughters and 4 beautiful grandchildren. Death is all around us but somehow we've managed to distance ourselves from it. Men, Mourning, Moments is about how the death of my son awakened me to life & the desire to seize every moment as though it were my last. It's about making sense of life in the good times and bad and allowing GOD to carry me and teach me through the hard times in life.
