Life should be calm and mello.
Like a lake before a storm
like an old movie that you've seen a million times.
Life shouldn't be rushed
like the freeway at 5:00 o'clock.
Life should be beautiful
As a golden sunrise over a mountain
like an aurora filling the dark and gloomy sky.
Life should be perky
like after sleeping an extra hour
Life should end in peace
like the fading stars at dawn.
