How long is too short?
How do you measure a short life
Or wasted years
There is no meter to read efforts, power or strength
Why call him a lazy man?
Why call her a callous woman?
Who are you to judge?
What is your measure?
The good is unfair to some
While the bad favors some
The village man wants to go to the city
While the city man wants to go to another state
The holy books fate unbelievers to eternal damnation
What is your measure
Why choose to see black and white
In a colorful world
We are all victims of our circumstances and that is our tape
We measure by our insecurities, fears, envy and pride
We are all someone and no one to everyone
