Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.
I'm not trying to keep up or adapt. I'm allowing myself to grow, evolve and create new music.
-- LL Cool J
We adapt to climate or to new work place
trying to fit into something we can't change
but then many go through life with fake face
which I find de-personalizing and quite strange.
Like chameleon changing colors a lot
some will adapt not showing true face
oftentimes with angry gut tied in a knot
but keeping role that's easy to embrace.
It takes an alive fish to swim upstream
dead one is taken by current as we know
thus adapting we may take such an extreme
by always making sure that we go with the flow.
In a habit of taking line of the least resistance
we don't create much beyond our survival skills
maneuvering safely to ensure smooth coexistence
we are bound to avoid any out of comfort zone thrills.
Having a predictable life by adapting to others
apparently with no guts to step out of our groove
not even daring to face what in that sameness bothers
we just adapt to what already is, with no spirit to improve.
Don't make any waves, do as others do
adapt to the mainstream for Pete's sake
that way you'll be loved and popular too
even if you're phony and your act is fake.
Well, not me -- and to many that's no news
my adapting is limited by what I can't change
I don't care what the entire world might choose
I'm doing my own thing that's within doable range.
