    Perceptions rearrange,
    While the season changes
    I am revolving
    Like doors, mentally evolving,
    Elevating my mind before times runs out.

    Time is so precious, like a gem.
    And like salt in an hourglass
    Every grain of it, I worship.
    I can’t condemn the ignorance of the world
    I flow through this life untouched,
    Un-sheltered from life’s complexities, never knowing which will affect me.
    I walk through this world day by day, struggling to make sense of the non-sense
    So instead I use my common sense on the daily, it won’t fail me
    Every penny I see, I pick up and put it in my pocket
    Call it how ya wanna call it; this world owes nothing to me
    And whatever I see the world throws at me,
    I catch,
    Knowing that I can make it mine rightfully.
