Look at you.
Look at you with your money,
Look at you with your things,
Look at you with your flash,
Look at you with your money,
Have you found yourself yet?
Look at you with your flash,
Are you happy yet?

Hey you!
Hey you with the cars!
Hey you with the houses!
Hey you with the bling!
Hey you with the cars!
Have you found yourself yet?
Hey you with the bling!
Are you happy yet?

Look around,
Do you remember the stars?
Do you remember the streams?
You don't remember the simple do you?
Do you remember the stars?
Have you found yourself yet?
You don't remember the simple do you?
Are you happy yet?

Look at you.
You will never understand.
With your money, things, flash, cars, houses, bling.
You don't remember the simple do you?
You will never understand.
Without your money, things, flash cars, houses, bling.
You don't remember the simple do you?
You won't be happy until you do.


The author's comments:
This piece is written in Pantoum form. It is about the way I feel about life in general, about taking it slow and enjoying the simple things. Sometimes I think a lot of people forget that the world is so beautiful without superficial or man made products.
