This Day

I grew up in the sixties when the world was sure to end
The young were born to teach peace again
Till brotherhood went up in smoke or in someone’s veins
We expanded our minds and went insane
Then I opened my spirit to wisdom and god
Buddha, Zen or Christ who paid the bail
When I didn’t reach peace I left the pilgrimage for cash
The prophets mostly ended up in jail
I’ve spent my life on ideals
Now I’ll settle for what’s real
I feel the need to feel, something, anything that’s real
Women finally found their place in the human race
No commitments, I heard a higher call
But free love was expensive, the damage extensive
Did these empty arms gain anything at all?
Anything at all?
I’ve spent my life on ideals
At last I’ve found what is real
I still feel the need to feel
Something real, anything that’s real
For me, it is knowing You Jesus
Though I couldn’t see the truth back when
You’re my reality
You’ve been closer to me
than any friend,
Your love never ends
Real love knows no end.
