Wanting More

from Sands of Time by Cyril the Wolf



I wrote this so long ago I have no idea what I was doing or thinking about when I wrote it. I know I came up with the line "Book of 10,000 pages" but I've always wanted more from life and it's sort of driven me to keep creating even in adversity.


Nothing is worse than a life unlived
A soul that has aged but with nothing to give
A state of a affairs where comfort is king
Give up your freedom and receive everything

Running in place you always stay
Trapped in a cyclical pace everyday
Try to break the pattern and get beaten down
Swim without help and you'll surely drown

*Is life in poems, in verse or a line?
Is it novel or something more unkind?
Does it matter when you’re never sure
It doesn’t matter when it’s all a blur*
When there is written nothing
In your book of 10,000 pages
It leaves you wanting more….

You try to take the world
But you can’t fair well on your own
You try and beat the rest
But 1 in a million is 1 in 6

It ends faster than it begins
Tear them down and shut the door
Trying to avoid that worthless fate
Tired of the circle of "make life wait"

There is written nothing
In Death’s book of 10,000 pages
It leaves you so dry and beaten
It leaves you wanting more
It makes you cry for more …

Lies turn the table in a war where everyone wants to score
And Lord I know I want to finish right here but
There’s a little bit to understand my friend
The devil’s never on the level in the end
Now you’re given a livin’ for somethin’ more
Turn the tables on the theivin' to even the score
Shout it out loud, grin and not frown
‘Cause they wanna steal your soul and leave you to drown.

A child, a man, or a woman in life
All have to deal with trials under a knife
But it didn’t matter when they could not be sure
When you thought there was nothing
In life’s book of 10,000 pages
It left you so dry and beaten
It left you wanting more

Nothing seems to numb the pain
Every blow shakes to the core
It's not the life you want to live
So you're still left wanting more
