‘Carpe Diem’ by SW

We’ve all acquired some worthless education.

A bit of this and a bit of that,

And with constant effort some imitation,

so can win that race against another rat.

But well read and conned by rot

will earn you a trade and ultimately to the cot;

one shall retire with nothing in hand

except the many regrets of heart; of unfinished travel to faraway land.

Reality maybe an illusion,

but let not the function be impaired or let it be bind;

that is, I speak of body and of mind,

and within these two, there never should be a collusion.

The purpose of human life is to relentlessly pursue a passion,

merely following the treaded path is so not in fashion.
