You’re not living like you should be,
You’re running out of peace and glee,
You’re only running for fame and glory,
Should ‘that’ be your life story?
How can you be so very insane?
How can you live with so much pain?
You want to laugh but you don’t even grin,
Have you killed yourself from within?
You’re exhausted, You’re fed up,
But you don’t want to give up,
You want, but you can’t get bliss,
Tell me, what kind of life is this?
Has life made you complicated?
Or is it the other way around?
Question yourself,question your mind,
I’m sure, one day, the answer you’ll find.
Remember when you were a child,
Your mind and heart, both were mild,
I know you regret those days,
So, why not get back to those ways?
Run for glory, I don’t deny,
But you can’t handle that glory,
Until your soul is not free and mild,
Until you don’t live like a child!
