A Lesson For Us All

5 people from different worlds

They teach us as their universe swirled


The 1st guided by the strings of his guitar

He fell for her from a far

He turned his neck to see her fade

Learning things he'd betrayed


The 2nd curious as a cat

It's all she knows, it's a matter of fact

She dreams of him, and money too

Power, look what it can do


The 3rd is a spokesman, watching at night

Seeing that you'll stay out of sight

Accompianied by the fate of you

He argues that you make a breakthrough


The 4th is stubborn, a solid hand

He's broken at heart, won't show it on land

Set in his ways, stuck on his girl

Trying to earn the spring pearl


The 5th thrived off the summer time

In the winter she was set in a certain line

She loved him even though he seemed not to care

Her heart was big, she felt she could've been anywhere


The 5 taught us the values of





and hope


We must learn from there mistakes

and understand when to hit the breaks
