At the eternal roundabout
are you in or are you out?

All parts of the whole
the background, the actors, the high and the low

Any color’s glory and frame
each shade, the warlord, the wealthy in shame

Amidst the countless crowd
what are you up for, when are you out?

An invincible, innocent ocean
them tagging you in digit and for real, tugging at your emotions

Always, yet here, the miraculous wheel remains
turns, frees, captures, forgives – quietly shines, tenderly smiles –

Watch Life live claim
