I was born free, and easy, gentle on my mind.
nineteen sixty seven was a different time.
now, nothing is left, but to simply exist.
being one from some time, I incorporate this.
strange, how a culture can shock to the core.
itself is itself, of itself, it endures.
time slips away one second at a time.
the past holds on fast, to the mind, as a sign.
one half of that life, I could not resist.
nineteen sixty seven was a different zeitgeist.
born free, and easy, is mental in the mind.
nineteen sixty seven was a difficult time.
