We wrap ourselves up in our own little world
and can't seem to find our way out.
Why do we choose to go our own way
but then wonder what life's all about?
Do we find enjoyment in all the wrong ways
and find ourselves woefully lost -
and seek out pleasure in other great things -
but then find that they have a cost?
We study volcano's, the atom, the light -
study unknowns, the uncharted -
studying past, seeking the future -
but find ourselves back where we started.
Do we find employment and sell our life's hours
in wages for other good things?
Do we seek out treasures, tie ourselves up -
and dance like we're puppets on strings?
Are we so wrapped in our little world -
in earthly things we can't assess?
Have we drawn conclusions with theories and more -
then wander so futilely aimless?
Our warmth is important, some shelter, some food -
but always remember Lot's wife.
For what is the worth of all earthly goods -
in exchange for eternal life?
Luke 17 (KJV)
32 Remember Lot's wife.
33 Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.
