The Three That Let Us Be
I have searched for the spiritual,
Wrapped in the lyrical,
With an open heart sought the truth that sings.
I have pondered the miniscule,
And the impossible,
And also all the improbable things.
I have sought revelation,
In the hope that insight might hold recompense.
And the insight this brings,
Is that life is three things,
Responsibility, choice and consequence.
Choice is our gift,
And our burden to lift,
It's the very thing that sets us free.
Then comes consequence,
For all choice has expense,
And the scales must be balanced you see.
For all judgements passed,
Belong to us intrinsically.
My friends do not doubt,
All that life is about,
Is choice, consequence and responsibility.
