WI Questionable, Coercion, Awakening

QUESTIONABLE:

THE TIME OF OUR LIFE:
When? Who? What? Why? Where?

Yesterday, the day before
Tomorrow, the day after
This week, last week, next week
This year, last year, next year
When is it?
When was it?
When will it be?

Present, future, history
It is, it will be, it was
Actions and decisions
Memories - just tenses?
Who can say?
Who is right?
Who even knows?

Time will pass us by, quickly
A lifetime’s not very long
We’ll all be dead, one day
It won’t be long from now
What is death?
What is hell?
What is heaven?

Our lives will flash before us
In vivid, lurid detail
The things that we got right
The things that we got wrong
Why not this?
Why not that?
Why were we blind?

Everything is revealed
Whether we like it, or not
We will ask the questions
Will we know the answers?
Where are hopes?
Where are dreams?
Where is wisdom?


COERCION:

SUBJECTIVE SUBJUNCTIVE

I think I would, if I could
But really, should I? Really?
It wouldn’t matter
If I couldn’t care
But I shouldn’t get it wrong

How could I have ever known?
How things really should have been?
Nobody would say
People wouldn’t tell
They just couldn’t help
It shouldn’t matter
It was I who got it wrong

Would it, should it, could it be?
Wouldn’t, shouldn’t, couldn’t see?
All that wood and not a tree.
All that good that comes from me.
All that blood I would have spilt.
The things that stood between us
All that passion in us
All I ever wanted
Next time I should get it right

...Would that you could allow me


AWAKENING:

MORE TO LIFE?

Upside down, inside out, the wrong way round
Sound familiar?
Just like life, mine and yours. Same old, same old
There has to be more
Let’s face it together; be proactive
Things will come our way
If I act; see to things, then I can be
Better than myself
If you act; get things done, in the right way
You’ll be better too
Do you think I am right? Just a case of
Co-operation
Some might say we’re dreamers. We will show them
What dreams can achieve
By and by, we will find trust and respect
Make our lives complete
In no time we will prove to the doubters
There is more to life
