And woman has to figure this life out for themselves, so I'm figuring. I wrote this while watching the movie "Changing Lanes," starring Ben Affleck and Samuel L. Jackson.

I've figured and figured,
nothing but nonsense has triggered.
Most don't fit common sense,
this world is full of nonsense.
This has moved me to really straighten up,
so that I won't be so corrupt.

Good sense is a requirement,
to make it in this screwed up environment.
I get down on my knees and pray,
maybe God will hear my say.
Why does life have to be this way,
each and everyday?

Life is the way it is,
but I do not have to be like life.
I can be like life is suppose to be,
I can make some sense,
out of all this nonsense.
So I travel on this trip,
to give my own stupidity a flip.

If I hate the worlds stupidity,
how can I be like the world?
I dare myself to be different.
My hate now and in the future
gets a change.
Loves concepts
will help me rearrange.
