"It turns out it all depends on me"

My Special Relativity

I have been lost as I have been found
Without going anywhere
On this turning world I got turned around
Or so it would seem to be
How it all happened and like the way
It was but I believe I see
The answer in the question day by day

My special relativity

To make it real compared to what
I see
To "keep it real compared to what?"
To me

By which I say that if I was there
I was neither found nor lost
But there in my own company
Where relative Rubicons are crossed
Absolutely relatively
A lesson learned at considerable cost

It turns out it all depends on me

To find myself losing my mind and stay
Not found because not lost to find
What everyone else is looking for
Some happiness some peace of mind
And maybe even some love someday
Enough for me and I would ask no more

In my own company
And yet in propinquity
To those
Who enjoy being now
And who would like to see how
It goes
And if we cannot know anyway
At least to see it go

Or maybe knowing is not to know
But wondering why as it is going by
Not knowing but growing even so

Who knows?

To make it real compared to what
I see
To "keep it real compared to what?"
To me

My special relativity

On this turning world getting lost and found
Or so it seems getting turned around
In the absolute hope of destiny
If we cannot know what can we do
But believe in something relatively
And hope that it comes true ?

So relatively I believe in me
And hope that you do too
