SONG – The Spinning Hands (A Song of Time)

time-dance-by-kmls

It is hard to slow down when we’re running out of time.
I could never accomplish what I want in a thousand lifetimes.
I keep spinning with the world like I’m turning on a dime
and more coins in the meter won’t increase the rhyme.

It is a human construct. It is hard to believe.
How ever much time I have, I have all I need.
There is nothing I can do to stop the spinning hands
except choose to live in grace and do the best that I can.

I am but a grain of sand on the shore of eternity.
I am the smallest drop of water in the biggest sea.
But here I am in this moment in the great arc of history.
I was born for a purpose. There is only one of me.

It is a human construct. It is hard to believe.
How ever much time I have, I have all I need.
There is nothing I can do to stop the spinning hands
except choose to live in grace and do the best that I can.

So what do I do with this limited commodity?
Do I waste it in the pursuit of mediocrity?
Or do I give it away like the gift it is to be
and live within the paradox of generosity?

It is a human construct. It is hard to believe.
How ever much time I have, I have all I need.
There is nothing I can do to stop the spinning hands
except choose to live in grace and do the best that I can.

To the Pop Star’s Ego

So many of your songs allude to “they.”
You’re so concerned with what they say.
I guess success hasn’t helped your esteem,
like someone’s trying to ruin your dream.

Anyone with an alternative slant
is labeled a hater in your rant.
It’s like everyone has to be your fan,
the ultimate narcissistic plan.

As an old musician, I’d offer some advice
If you sing from your center, that should suffice.
But it won’t matter what I say.
You’ll put me in your song and call me “they.”
