Entertainment vs Enlightenment

Entertainment or Enlightenment
We’ll be a seeker of one
But not the other

Entertainment is the side show barker
The neon signs and the roaring crowd
They call us to escape the here and now
For passing fantasy

Enlightenment is the quiet hillside
The narrow gate and path
They lead us to something more than ourselves
They lead us to the cross

Entertainment’s lesson is about self love
While enlightenment teaches about true love

Entertainment is the fog this world
While enlightenment is the sun that burns away the fog

To seek constant escape
is to seek destruction
The death of life
And to embrace only fantasy

To seek truth
Is to seek true life
The death of self love
And to embrace the cross
