In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Can’t Drive 55.”
I have chosen Simple Man by Lynyrd Skynyrd, most people probably just think of them doing Freebird but the words to Simple Man are just so right.
“Be a simple kind of man, Oh be something you love and understand.
Forget your lust for rich man’s gold. All that you need is in your soul.”
I think those two lines say it all for me and over the years it has become one of my favourite songs of all time. It is as the title says, Simple Man, we all crave for something which we may not be able to obtain so just go for the simple things in life, love, sunsets, the beauty of our planet and all the wildliffe, enjoy it all. Yes some of these things may just be brief moments but cherish them all the same, who knows how long they will last for?
