… you won’t feel

Stay busy and you won't feel the longing; 
Keep moving and you won't feel the ache. 
Diversionary tactics employing, 
Don't think about the difference you make -- 

Stay active so you don't know the sorrow; 
Make lists of everything that matters not -- 
Never look into your heart, or to tomorrow, 
For ephemera is all you've really
