Like Many People

Do you (like many people) look for future in the clouds?
Do you (like many people) find your future in the sun?
Do you (like many people) think your future’s ‘mine’ not ‘ours’?
Do you (like many people) think our future is as one?

Have you (like many people) found your future in the past?
Have you (like many people) thought your future torn and lost?
Have you (like many people) turned around but never asked?
Have you (like many people) turned around and faced the cost?

Will you (like many people) take your future to the test?
Will you (like many people) quieten down and fail to seek?
Will you (like many people) slumber on but never rest?
Will you (like many people) fin’lly find the words to speak?

I’m one of those (are you)?
Who finds it hard to see it through …
