Destiny is a funny thing
There are no manuals
No way to figure out where you fit

Sometimes I look at things
Wondering if I have a place
Thinking that there is nowhere for me

There are people in the world
Who choose religion as a guide
But religion is just another business

Still others who choose money
The primary focus is to get more
Money keeps its own counsel and corrupts

The love of a child - a spouse
So strong, so true, so real
Why can that not be enough?

I dance into flame
Daring the fire to burn me
Wondering why it avoids me again

Flirting with chaos
Damning the consequences
My pleadings for mercy go unheard
