The Vocation of Life
We are young
We are old
We are love
We are bold
We sing the songs of our souls
Returning home to the streets of Gold
We laugh we play
We sing we pray
We rejoice in the Glory of the Great One
We celebrate and toast to a job well done
We feast with loved ones whom we thought were gone
Only to find out their spirits were with us from dusk ‘til dawn
We look at a movie projector of our lives
It instantaneously brings us back in time
We see our pain and our strife
We see where we did good and perhaps where we failed to try
We see our failures and our triumphs
We revisit our decisions and how we inevitably made our minds up
We are surrounded by the elders and by the Great One, also known as God
We are not by any means chastised or criticized for what we’ve done wrong
O’ Contrare, we are surrounded by a force of light in a place right where we belong
You see, this life we’ve been given is so precious and so kind
We are all here to learn, experience and grow as a people, as all of mankind
So before you get to those pearly white gates
Stop and ask yourself, why are you here and what is your desired fate?
Are you to be a musician inspired by choirs of angels?
Or perhaps you’re here to own your own coffee shop where you’ll sell the most delightfully delicious bagels
Are you here to heal the world like Mother Theresa?
Or maybe you’re here to help immigrants obtain their visas
Do you paint pictures of peace?
Do you dance passionately encouraging people to get out of their seats?
Follow your vocation, whatever it may be, for you will be surprised at where following your heart may lead
Are you here to be a father?
It’s never too late to have a daughter
Are you here to bore twins?
It’s never too late for you to create your next of kin
Oh and how you will be filled with joy and love
As you hold your precious little peanut in your arms, surely a blessing from up above Again we say from the heavens to the earth
Follow your vocation as we are all here to serve
And now we sing to you the melodies of Heaven
You are surrounded and protected by the Great Jaguar Medicine
We love you now here and then
We love you in the past and in the future time and time again
Should your soul ever be weary and downtrodden
Open your heart and let God in
Should you cry tears of loneliness and disappointment
Let your intuition guide you to the perfect ointment
Should you ever want to give up
Hold your head high and ask for strength from up above
May we send good tidings and blessings your way
We want you all to know that you are not alone and we hear you when you pray
To all my soldiers and warriors alike
May you be brave, for you may lose a battle but not the fight
May you conquer the uncertainty of the unknown
With a confidence and clarity of the Great Kings and Queens of the past as they sat upon their thrones
To all my children red, white & blue
Please always remember I love you
