I keep looking,
from the people, famous, idolized and revered as they are,
in this crazy world of ours.
I read what they say,
and, I weigh it, in my mind with such hope.
But, when I finally do Iie down at the end of the day,
and go over in what I have learned each day,
I too often have to “rock myself to sleep”
with a certain reality.
A reality that I, such a simple man,
formed by my own simple experiences,
know more about life than these rich and famous
who are so revered by others.
To me, again, simple man that I am,
the world is driven and run by the stupid and unknowing.
Well, it seems be because they are louder than myself,
and my peers,
who live in a world of reality and reason.
