Tell Me Where Do You Go To…?
Tell me, where do you go to
when you’re alone in your head?
How do you know what’s important
to achieve within your good stead?
Take opportunities presented-
try everything once if you can.
Don’t let dreams pass by because it’s too hard,
because adversity makes you a man.
Contemplate both the good and the bad,
prioritize, study, and plan.
Try to solve puzzles that challenge the mind,
don’t be just a flash in the pan.
Some people travel life’s journey
with no destination in mind.
Fortune may make some successful,
but others are left far behind.
Don’t criticize people’s intentions-
if you’re sinful, hold onto those stones.
Keep skeletons locked in the closet-
try not to disturb their bleached bones.
If you are accepting and honest,
and are pure and noble of heart,
You will overcome all of your worries-
when lives finish new ones will start.
Sometimes you may get tired and weary.
Try your best, but rest when you must.
Slow and steady is better than no real attempt-
and your effort will win people’s trust.
Just do what you know is important,
“common sense” is not common at all.
Let your heart and your brain work together-
as a team, they will make the right call.

When I talk about today’s world, I don’t know where to start. Well, I guess the first thing mentioned has to be the pandemic and how it affects almost everything else in life, both locally and abroad. With sickness, death, lock-downs, restrictions, protests it is impossible to avoid.
Sometimes we just have to sit and reflect and try to think about what is really important in our lives and sort out our priorities. Only worry about the things that we can have control over, and hope and pray those beyond our scope eventually work out for the best. Each of us needs to concentrate on being the best person he or she can be in this troubled world.
