The Idea

“the thing is to find the truth
which is true for me”

Indeed, I am an idealist
and I will tilt at windmills;
however, I must keep it real.

Some would rather be mad than pleased;
some would rather worry than be happy.
As for myself, I do not judge.

Indeed, I am very loyal
and I will stand in harm’s way;
however, I must be for real.

Some say one thing and do nothing;
some do one thing and say nothing.
As for myself, I do the deed.

Indeed, I am kindhearted
and I’m hoisted on my petard;
however, I must be the real deal.

Some see many problems and stall;
some stall and make many problems.
As for myself, I give mercy.

“the thing is to find the idea
for which I can live and die”

Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
