Reason

I roll around in circles ’cause I never learned to think.

So, I go to films and packs of friends, which push me into sync

With the world of cool that maps it out (the plan for everyday)

Until I lay in death to rest or earth just falls into decay.

We humans have amazing skills and one of which is reason.

We could satisfy our every need, so we’re aware of seasons.

But, this “task” is way too hard to begin to think it all through.

So instead of curing pain with conscious thought, here’s what we do

We try to cure the void of love with TV for distraction.

We watch our show and look at life if it were set and crafted.

We try our best to copy scripts and follow plans exactly

But, then manipulate the “love” we want while forming all the actors.

Now, life has turned into a “thing” which we know we can’t do

From the fact that life is changing and its telling us to move.

If we think for just one hour with no noise in our room

Not one person, or a phone that would interject through

This waking moment with ourselves, inside our thoughts and our feelings.

Maybe we will see the point I’m making is not of those deceiving.

Its a truth and our lives are not much happier this way

When we distract and fill our time with all these veggie filled days.

So, as I roll in these circles ’cause I never learned to think

I am learning.

And now I am finding all these little links.

With our reason, I am learning of myself and my dreams.

In every season, I’m learning different ways in which life speaks.

Life is an experience to be loved, lived, and learned

Not an object…to be controlled, crashed, and burned

Inspired by:

in being innocent we respond to being alive by trying to understand what is true and provide what is needed, and we never manipulate for advantage or control; primarily because we observe that both advantage and control are illusions, and do not exist in the reality of being a mortal human being.

About Kevin Carlstead

I graduated as a hospitality and psychology student at University of Denver. I spent most of my teenage and young adult years in the hospitality industry. I am still searching for what industry suits my personality and talents so that I can feel more meaning throughout my days. My current career pursuit has me enrolled in a graduate program to become a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I was born and raised in San Diego, CA. I love music with something to it. I love life with something to it. I have made it one of my purposes in this life to integrate both of these things that I love. This blog and my own songwriting has given me the platforms to do that very thing. Thank you for reading.
