it makes you happy and sad

it is a beginning and an end
the power you use to make distance
to make t’s cross and i’s dot
it is around, not through
but you have to move through to get around
it’s all so complicated
but easy enough to figure out
the way the ocean seems to work
and the days go right on by
people find the time to learn
and we let them tell us
that makes it easy
except when you try and figure out what to do about it
and get that the answer is nothing

it makes you happy and sad
to have figured out the puzzle
only to realize that means the game is over
