I knew I would be a good pianist. But look at me now.
I knew I would be a good actor. Look what's happened to me now.
I knew I would be a good singer. See what I am now.
I know I will be a good guitarist. What will become of me in the end?
Dream after dream, I am shattered.
Hope after hope, will I be left broken?
Who am I? Do I serve no purpose on this Earth? Am I destined to just live and die on this Earth? This filthy, rotten, polluted, sinful Earth?
Why am I cursing this Earth? I possess filthy thoughts. I have a rotten body. My mind is polluted. I am sinful.
Why am I cursing this Earth?
Or are the answers just behind the curtain, the Iron Curtain of filth, decay, pollution and sin? Painfully obvious, yet playfully subtle?
Or will I realise on my deathbed, with tears in my eyes, that too late, far too late, have I learnt, to just let all around you fade away, drop away, to serve God alone, and let his rewards come to you naturally?
