It's about the People

Deeper into this realisation
A dawning of a personal revelation 
Into myself I search within
I love people way more than I think

At Legoland I find myself captivated 
Not by the Lego but by the facial expressions 
Of adults and children
As they're mesmerised by a magician

At the Malaysia day celebration
I see a father running with son and daughter on each hand
Towards and through the rainbow cloths despite the rain
Symbolising a great crossover into the promise land

In these very moments, I'm captured, captivated and mesmerised. 

The beauty of what family brings
In the 'mundane' I see true joy
Life's pleasant mysteries
Unfolding before me, priceless

Whether its the anxiety written all over an uncles face
As he sees the magician puts a sword through a throat 
Or the way a little girl runs with her dad 
Into the pouring rain with such glee on her face

I realise it's moments like these that I live for.

The same as sitting in my living room 
Watching tv and discussing with my family
Or time spent with friends
Laughing till my tummy hurts so bad

It's all about the people
And not just the ones I know
For I find such enjoyment
In people watching rather than a staged show

All the more am I pushed to share His love with them
For aren't they the very reasons He sent His Son?
May I continue to see the way my Dad sees
That in whatever situation, it really is 

All about the people...
