I chopped down a tree

I chopped down a tree
To make an axe

Now why would I need an axe, you ask
Why, I chopped down a tree
To make an axe
To chop down yet another tree
To make another axe
So I can chop down more trees
So I can make more axes;
That’s how I earn my living
Ain’t nothing wrong with that

Still everybody asks me “why”
When certainly the more important question is:
Which one came first?
The tree? The axe?

For it’s gotta be the tree
Who started all of this
And I am just a victim.

Take a deep breath

Humans are sometimes forgetful
Of their most basic needs
Yet the key to our success
Is sorting them out first

Take a deep breath

Be all things as they are
You are alive at this very moment
And the future is always uncertain
No matter how it might seem

Take a deep breath

There’s always time to pause
And to recollect your thoughts
To put the past behind you
And to ask yourself the question

Take a deep breath
