If I can't do
what I want to do
then my job is to not
do what I don't want
to do

It's not the same thing
but it's the best I can

If I can't have what I want
then my job is to want
what I've got
and be satisfied
that atleast there is
something more to want

Since I can't go
where I want to go
then I must go
where the sign points
though always understanding
parallel movement
isn't lateral

When I can't express
what I really feel
I pratice feeling
what I can express
And none of it is equal

I know
but that's why mankind
alone among the animals
learns to cry
