More


I get these ideas that I should write about the world

Widen my horizon

Broaden my view

Travel more to tell more

 

I get these ideas that art should represent rather than be

Explain to us the system we all go by

Touch us so we love more

 

And then the night comes

And my visions of holding the globe slip

My arms are too short

I can’t get a tight grip

Instead it is just one good intention sailing among thousands

In an infinite universe expanding

And while dark matter pours in all directions

We rise and fall

Come and go

I wanna be more than energy

I wanna be whole

 

I get these ideas that I must fill the blank spots

Read the history, thoroughly 

Speak new languages, fluently

Learn more to live more

 

I get these ideas that I must keep getting ideas

Come up with something new

Surprise and impress you

Be more to be liked more

 

And then the night comes

And I put it all aside

All my visions and intentions seem to drift off with the tide

 

But if I can have another morning

And another and another after that

I know I’ll try more

To give more
