Life used to be about the magic
Life was once about the wonder
We ruled the earth
Nothing could stop us
Our oyster awaited
Life grew to be about surviving
Life developed into making it
Work ruled our existence
Our freedom usurped
Old age awaited
Life used to be about surviving
Now it is about enjoyment
Magic rules our world
Life is full of wonder
Our dreams await
Life survives because of the magic
