Cosmic Design

It's not as simple as just being
It's not as complicated as feeling
It's not the rhetoric we've imagined
Everything just is whatever it is


There's no cosmic plan
No grand design
Just actions in each hand
Decisions in the mind


When you think about the loss
The regret, the pain, the memories
When you ponder all the lost
The deceit, the lies, the selfish greed
When you decide to follow on
You reflect your contempt, the certainties
When you see where you went wrong
The mistakes you had made, the masks you've seen


Then you realize
There's no cosmic design
No predestined lives
Just choices and tries
Failures and cries
Triumphs and fights
Regrets and sighs


When you realize
There's no cosmic design
Just choices in your minds
Habits built with time
Deceptions to your eyes
No, there is no cosmic design


Everyone makes their choices
Some for selfish things
Others for compassion
Everyone makes their choices
Some only for themselves
Others just to find ways they can help


There is no cosmic design
No plan etched over time
Just each moment passing by
I think that's the secret of life


Don't think about tomorrow
When today is not yet gone
Leave yesterdays old sorrows
As you stand up and move on


Because you cannot live your life
Catering to some cosmic design
Because there's sickness
And cruelty
And evil in this world
There's madness
And sadness
And tragedies unheard


So you cannot live your life
Catering to some cosmic design
Because there's moments of pure love
Moments born of tender touch
There are friends who hold you up
There is friendship
And sanctity
And passion in this world
There's madness
And sweet caress
And romances incurred


So, live the life you have
That way that makes you glad
To stand and hold the hands
Of all the ones you can


Tomorrow might be just another day
Or it might come to claim loved ones away
But you cannot think there is a cosmic design
Take heed of now and choose to live your life


The life belongs to you
So do all you can do
Don't cater to a cosmic design
Because tomorrow, will be today when it arrives


So choose to live your life
Because there is no cosmic design
