Why I'll Never Settle DownTuesday, October 20, 2015
I call it:
They say as you grow older, you must settle down;
keep a home, stay in town;
find a spouse, and have a kid;
"That's what the rest of us did"
Keep a job, work 'round the clock,
to pay the bills, and pick up the socks,
Buy the big house and the fancy car;
"That'll show 'em you've gone far."
Eat salads and green beans,
"This grown up world is no place for dreams".
Get home and exercise,
"must look thin, must act wise",
Then rest for an hour or two;
wake up just to start the same day anew...
But what if they're all wrong?
What if, as you grow older, you can still be free?
Find your partner and make a family.
Pursue your passion, forget the clock,
pay yourself, and leave the socks,
What if you could live life collecting experiences, instead of things,
forget the cars and fancy rings;
How about climbing mountains, and chasing dreams?
Never second guessing that ice cream.
Wouldn't it be something;
to move around, and see the world,
Lose the crowd, spend your days laughing out loud.
Wouldn't it be something to play in the rain, indulging in chocolates and champagne,
or spend your day helping someone in need, whether building a house or planting a seed,
Wouldn't it be something, to live a life you love,
fill your days with adventure, wisdom, and song,
then allow yourself to rest all night long;
Wouldn't it be something... if they were all wrong?
