Prompt: Chaos

Lyrics

V1
crisis or chaos?
madness or mayhem?

between rocks and
hard places
we sometimes dwell

we sometimes choose
our own living hell

crisis or chaos?
madness or mayhem?

are not good for me
or for you

C
it’s time to
change our choices
through actions
and voices

yes it’s time to
change choices
seek the good
find new truth
do it for you

V2
hardship or hazard?
darkness or demon?

between cliffs and
steep ledges
we often hang

we often lose
in self-crafted pain

hardship or hazard?
darkness or demon?

are not good for me
or for you

C
it’s time to
change our choices
through actions
and voices

yes it’s time to
change our choices
seek the good
find new truth
do it for you

A song for our times. So many current crises are due to people taking irrational decisions based on media fed prejudices, etc. And, of course, to the "post-truth" idea that "my belief system trumps your empirical facts". Sigh...

Better decisions by individuals would lead to a better world; however, if Putin decides to push the big red button, that choice is completely out of our hands, worse luck.

If only people were willing to enact choices that weren't tribal, political or self-promoting. But there's an inner connectivity we posses and will not relinquish. Still - your eloquent wording and insightful observation into the human condition has always been a pleasure to read and to compose to.

Nicely done! Really enjoyed these they are quite vivid and the best imagery is strong.

We are often our own worst enemy. Nice message full of great advice. Super easy flow that sings off the page. Very nice!

Indeed, it is time to change our choices.
This increasingly polarised world frightens the bejesus out of me.
