'change begets change'
with more we stay the same
interrupting our rotation
circles in the circle of repeitition

where we breach
we walk the tallest
Forfeiting the ordinary
declaring our own imprints on the world

For when you start being you truly stop following
walking through the line the shepard has marked
scribbled neatly are the words 'DO NOT PASS'
you glide gracefully over them
Above the rules of the leading
an openness without the limited

When you make this bold move, the one that feels right for you
you'll peer at a shepard in your reflection beneath the water
whilst you see sheep begin to herd in your horizon

Because when you grow well the whole world just wants to know how you do so
so followers crowd you
And you beg just to say
little sheep this is my way

The oceans weren't created so vast so that we would all tread upon the same path
the hills arent so high so we can measure with the same perception

If change begets change
I'm fine as long as we don't all change the same
And when I lead its so that I will follow
so that you may take a leap for someone hath made it over safely
We arent all to be on our way in the same way
and I enjoy it that way
For if our roads our different then we can end up in the same place
As if tis a universal finish of all the roads highways
or quite possibly creating this new direction will allow my mind and soul to travel to new places
If we continue to walk upon the manmade concrete we will always end at where man wants us to be

'change begets change'
and nature provides our escape
if we would only choose to change
