From Peasants to Kings

From peasants to kings

We all need the same things

How we measure our wealth

And the value we place on our health

Teaches us our utopias

Are just thoughts away from our dystopia

Seekers young and old

Must remove the decoys of blindfolds

The distractions that we face

Are all too much commonplace

In 1513 Ponce de León sought the fountain of youth

A never-ending desire, a never-ending truth

Jason and the Argonauts sought the golden fleece

But in the end Prince Jason, would not find any peace

Sir Perceval and Sir Galahad; Knights who sought the Holy Grail

Another illusive search, another illusive tale

Dorothy and Toto finds a Scarecrow, a Tin Man, and a Lion in Oz

Only to find out that a happiness, can only be self-caused

A quest for a better life is not as hard as you think

We separate our reality by story, to awaken to this truth in a blink
