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
