Life Is A Hoax

A Grand Illusion

The physical universe is basically
Playful, and our existence is interesting,
Yet there is no necessity whatsoever
For the beingness nothingness dares endeavor.
But it’s all here – this grossly perpetual thing
That all is. So does it have every right to be?

It has no destination. It simply exists
In a complex arrangement of infinite cause
And effect between galactic forces at play
That make wonderful music. It wants to convey
Harmony within chaos. It has many laws.
Nonexistence is something it clearly resists.

In this culture it’s all about making the grade.
From the time we’re young children until we are old
We’re taught to get to the ordeal on to success.
We spend most of our adult lives under much stress.
We find out late in life that we’ve been undersold
By ourselves. The best part of us hasn’t been played.

What a bitterly dreadful hoax your life could be
If you won’t hear the music the universe plays.
Serious was your intent before coming here
That you would sing or dance. Are you anywhere near
Your life purpose? Is it one that you yourself praise?
While the music is playing, take part in the glee.

Life Is A Hoax

The Illusion Apparent

The whole point of my being here is to Be Here.
There’s no reason nor purpose I need to strive for.
The nature of the universe basically
Is dynamic and playful. My goal is to be
In receptive mode always. There is nothing more
In this life that I’m after. This can’t be more clear.

We are human beings and not human doings.
Each of us is a small part of all creation.
But this information isn’t taught in our schools.
If we master the rat race we still feel like fools.
There is so much importance to having more fun.
We are taught to be hard workers above all things.

In music, one does not make the end of a song
The thing that should be focused on. That is absurd.
The song in its entirety is what’s enjoyed,
But this logic escapes us when we are employed
By the corporate dragon. Joy must be deferred
To life’s end when we’re broken. There’s something quite wrong.

We’re victims of a dreadful hoax, having been played
By societal structures with huge promises
Of a life of fulfillment after many years.
We chase after that carrot and swallow our fears
Until death do we part. All the small successes
Pale in comparison to the higher price paid.
