Name of Song: Rhythmed into strife

I was urged to move
A long long time ago,
Never meant to happen,
But kept me on the go. 

It happened oh so slowly,
During magnitudes of time,
I simply didn’t understand that wave, 
It felt so so sublime. 

Chorus
Trapped by our own loving
To be be in tune with life,
But tricked by just this tiny wave
That rhythmed us into strife. 
______

It ate away at loving,
Until so little left,
That strife became the way of things
and is what we now call life. 

Have you ever felt so separate 
That you remember who you are,
And all the noise and other things
Seem eerily afar.  

No one talks about beings,
The essence of who we are,
They’re so engrossed in bodies and 
other things bizarre. 

You may now feel offended,
Well, your body isn’t you,
It’s what you use to get around
and they blind to what you knew. 

Chorus
Trapped by our own loving
To be be in tune with life,
But tricked by just this tiny wave
That rhythmed us into strife.
