So charming… so candidWith longings wild and vainSpirit flies up to the heavensWhy are we so the same? Glaring at the night skiesPartly illuminated by a crescent moonSending wishes upon the starsWhy are we so the same? Music rocks our soulIts instruments tickle our pastAnd melodies prophesying our futureWhy are we so the same? Both strong-willed and determinedAs horizons are far beyond reachHolding on to a life purpose-drivenWhy are we so the same? Frozen tears on the onset of springBeckoning silence within chaosFrontiers glowing and expandingWhy are we so the same? The world keeps on turningThe sun keeps on shiningThe heart keeps on beatingWild butterflies freely wandering We pause with so much humilityPatiently waiting for the truth signsAnd with a deep sigh it dawns on usWhy are we NOT the same?
