and something else profound.
I'm thinking of something that starts with "L"
it's not love, it's not lust or something you spell
It's more random than that and out of the blue
Or like a chance meeting with someone you knew
Now the " L" word in question might be a suggestion
A proverb the masses could learn and spell
It need not be deep or profound but confound it
At least it must start with the capital "L"
Looks like living lonely leaves little for laughter
In limbo you’re listless and lazy-boned
Just give me an “L" word that gives me some hope
And I promise I won't get so stoned
Now liberty's price is a long, long road
It's much easier to live like a slave
But like it or lump it there's no way to stump it
Just keep your chin up and be brave
It's looking less likely more likely to lose
That "L" word I hoped I might find
Left only with lethargy, loser and lame
I'm lacking the will or the time
It's probably so simple, right under my nose
Not worthy of causing me strife
It's the hardest of questions that yield simple answers
Maybe my “L” word’s just LIFE!
