When shit happens, take a walk in a park.
What will happen if this thing of yours doesn’t work?
The trees will grow, the light will turn dark,
Just as same… in this little park.
When shit happens, find a lazy cat.
Watch it grow bored of every game it played.
What will happen if your deadlines come to choke?
Just as same… the cat won’t care of that.
When shit happens, find a street light shine.
It’ll shine equally upon passers in haste.
What will happen if two of you burn out?
Just as same… you will be replaced.
When shit happens, take a second glance.
Raise your head above this box you placed your life in.
This world is too huge to crumble and to strife in
Your little battles and self-pity dance.
What will happen if everything goes wrong?
If you lose even the last bit of hope?
The park, the cat, and the street light will be there,
Just as same, you’ll all have to cope.
When trees get cut, new sprouts will come to grow,
And cat’s kittens will grow bored of fiddling,
And lights will be placed in another row.
And as it goes you too will go on…
