Back to the drawing board, I suppose
Profound, the little things are
I, little man, in my own little world
Taking things in big handfuls
Planting seeds in peoples' backyards

Aspire, the big things I shall
I, big man, in reality's big old world
Giving things in little gratuities
Building sand castles on beloved beaches

Success, the few things we see
I, rising man, in an ever changing society
Pulling myself up the rising staircase
Innovating to make our staircases better

Fail, the many things to endure
I, falling man, in a crumbling society
Pushing away all I've built to what end?
Exnovating to build anew?

I think I shan't.
