All is Vanity (Poem)

Burning-House-Firemen

We never see things as they are
We see them as we are

When we look for answers
We don’t look very far

We believe what people tell us
We believe the oldest lies

We believe in war
We believe in sex
We believe in suits and ties

We never see things as they are
All we see are lies

So when we start to lose our grasp
It’s really no surprise

Pleasure is futility
It won’t get you very far

When all is pleasure
We bear no fruit
We forget just who we are

Remember all is vanity
When we waste our lives away

We eat and drink
And fight and play
And never know the price we pay

All & All is Vanity
All is maligned with reproach

All is
And All will forever be
All is not ours to encroach

When all has returned to what it was
All will forever be

When we see things for what they are
All will forever see
