What Ultimately Matters

January 14, 2009
I've lived my life
in wonder of the future
'cause looking back
everything seems useless
what am I living for?
what is the reason?
I'm not sure of it
'cause it changes like the seasons
but one thing will never change
it will always matter
though my heart goes after different things
this passion won't scatter
only one thing matters to me
only one should matter to you
don't live for yourself
live for others
don't live for yourself
but live for your creator
bring hope to the lost
and save them from drowning
inspire the hopeless
and love your neighbors
'cause ultimately
that's what matters
