360 Degrees of Pain

As we watch the game of life
Do we wonder about the price?
Or do we just wonder about the end
Contemplating all the hours, we have to spend
Counting each day like a piece to a bigger puzzle
At the same time wondering why they don't trust you
Is it you, or is their own insecurity
Lost souls trapped drowning in their own hostility
Surrounding your existence like mosquito's in the summer
Claiming the whole time that truly love you
Make's you wonder what is love made of
Is its true form that they are afraid off?
Or are they thinking just as you are
At night staring up wondering about the stars
Trying to come to grips with their fate just like you
Only problem is that only in conflict is it proved true
So how do we agree to disagree without war?
Can we go different ways without opening up old sores?
Or it war the war the only process which we truly agree on
Divided by color, race, and culture as time speeds on
Following the same path, but at alternate ANGLES
Seeing each other as brothers but acting as stranger's
Living out God's plan in form, but following blindly
All stuck one subject, when will he find me?
We talk of community but live as individuals
It's impossible to comprehend until reality hits you
Smack dead in the face, like a speeding train
Only way back then is to overcome the intense pain
It's seems insurmountable until you discover the pother choice
Being stuck with apathy concealing your true voice
Once you think it over, the necessary action becomes visible
Only way out is to make sure they feel you
No matter what the situation or the consequence
Your survival is the only pretense
So which do you choose to follow?
From a distance, they all seem hollow
But once you peer deep inside them all
The one's that are irrelevant will magically fall
Leaving you with one clear path
Making it across the plane to it becomes the hard task
But by following the universal laws
You will find the way to rise above it all
