Open To The Wonder


This world can make you bitter

If you let it, but, don’t you let it

It doesn’t have to

Pain is going to test you

And struggle, it will test you

Fear and doubt will, too

No, not one thin dime can buy more time

Or a birdsong, or a sunrise

So before you go trading your soul for a handful of gold

You might consider this advice

There’s a current waiting to pull you under

Try to stay open to the wonder

Mighty money can fool you

But you can’t take it with you

Even if you chase it every day

Sorrow is not your mother

Trouble is not your father

And closing your heart ain’t the way

No, not one thin dime can buy more time

Or a birdsong, or a sunrise

So before you go trading your soul for a handful of gold

You might consider this advice

There’s a current waiting to pull you under

Try to stay open to the wonder
