Opt for the free life

Opt for the

free life!

go to where

no known

man

goes.

sit by the campfire.

play a flute and strum

a guitar.

smoke that

grandiose stogie

watching the

smoke

plume.

share a bottle of wine

with no man

and make a toast

to

god’s glory.

the wind will

blow glowing

embers

in the spirit

filled

air.

listen to the echo

of your music

bouncing off

the foothills

in the distance.

hear your soul

cry out

in glorious

emotion.

we think we

are in control,

yet

life has its hands

on our

steering wheel.

for,

wherever we turn,

as always,

there is life

itself

waiting

with a new

surprise

you never would expect

around

the next bend.

go to bed in your

van and look up

out the window

to the sky

and see the clouds

cross the moon.

hear the bird squawk

and the coyote howl

before you close your eyes

and fall

into slumber.

know that in being

there, you

are not so alone.
