Just be

Young and impressionable age are the teens
Built on dreams and fantasies
Fed on books, movies and TV
The world seems bright and spirit free

Growing up old, you come to see
A world that's grey and not so clean
Life so bleak and a harsh reality
Destiny a shackle for the feet

Mind tries to fight and desires to free
Wielding its powers to rewrite history
Is there any truth to whatever I see
Or is it all an illusion of some chemical sea

What if there is no meaning for me
Bunch of molecules, I am, glued in one piece
All for their own good and none for me
Nihilist is right and purpose is a cheat

Then again a thought crosses my mind
Yes, I do strive to make tomorrow better than it is
A tiny little part of the universe, me
Maybe, it is not so bad to just be
