    Lookin at the world through child's eyes
    accepting everything at face value
    never questioning what lies beyond
    the so-called reality of my world
    One day my child's eyes will open fully
    and i will see the world for true
    That day is Today!

    Looking at the world through teenage eyes
    challenging everything that comes my way
    cuz ain't gonna be no more of that
    just acceptin & retainin
    never learnin...not no more
    so until i find out for myself
    i'll study and research until i can prove it sure
    One day my teenage eyes will open fully
    and i'll resist the need to challenge
    and search so much on my own
    i'll realize that no one can hide truth
    but for so long, cuz it shines clear through all mask
    That day is Today!

    Looking at the world through adult eyes
    dismissing everything that seem useless right now
    cuz i gotta make space for what really matters
    being too busy to look into anything on a critical level
    cuz i'm pulled in to many directions
    i need to get my priorities straight
    One day my adult eyes will open fully
    and i will see for the first time that
    i can relax and give my brain a while to rest
    cuz it sure as hell needs it... not to mention my body
    That day is Today!

    Looking at the world through elder eyes
    understanding all that i didn't for so much of my life
    finally becomin wise; not acceptin no more of their tricks
    no longer arguing until the answer is mine...
    no longer running around content that i knew what i did not
    and putting stuff before my knowlegdge,
    so much that i became my own stumbling block
    Looking at the world through elder eyes
    I will shed the rose shaded aura that been built around me
    and see the world in truth
    That day is Today!

    love the concept
    and yes, with growth
    comes new vision
    through each experience
    and elevation of self
    the eyes continually open
    Great Concept!
    Great Flow!
