It Appears To Be That Way

Wait a minute.
Aren't they the same incompetent people,
Expressing with confidence...
Why they have a lack of competence?

'It appears to be that way.'

Is this the change being made,
We all can believe in?

'It appears to be that way.'

Is this the 'light',
Coming to poke holes through the darkness?

'It appears to be that way.'

Is this the rainbow that has come,
After relentless storms of anguish?

'It appears to be that way.'

Have you been affected by total disbelief,
And you are doing the best you can...
To stay on your own two feet.
And my voice you can hear,
But your consciousness has left...
To leave you unsure of your own footsteps?

'It appears to be that way.'

Hang in there.
But just don't stand planted,
To become more twisted by shifting winds.

'What are you saying?
I should be doing something else...
Other than just to hang in there?
With a going to somewhere with purpose? '

It appears to be that way.
