I want to invest my life in grand endeavors
Raise the scaffolding, build monuments, sculptors!
Something that says, “He reached beyond lofty goals!”
But I look inward, and just see my fragile soul.
I want a life that has more of the spiritual,
Less of the mundane, much more ethereal,
I steal the time away to make my wishes,
Returning, I still have to wash all the dishes.
