its not the end of the world

<p> configurations with alterations

life’s like a game settings screen

changes of preferences

and differences

ultimately solved like a riddle

minute changes and fiddles

to get to the best foretold

ending with known values that upholds

ideal realities, ignoring reality and reason

and when it all falls apart it feels like treason

against oneself, and hopes and aspirations

that fuelled that drive

but the fact remains still

life isn’t playing by our rules and calculations

and will never meet expectations

not always...

we just need to adapt and play with

whatever deck we’re dealt </p>


<p> some say expectations breed disappointment

while technically true, that's a pretty dim view

why let reality suppress and subdue

when in truth all we need is a smile to pull through

<b>Simply hit reset and start anew</b>

take different paths and review

your last choices and new ones pursue

because life is a game, so your choices don’t rue

<b>Simply hit reset and start anew</b></p>
