It's Just a Ride

The world is like a ride at an amusement park.
And when you choose to go on it, you think that
it's real because that's how powerful our minds are.
And the ride goes up and down and round and round.
It has thrills and chills, and it's very brightly coloured,
and it's very loud and it's fun, for a while.
Some people have been on the ride for a long time,
and they begin to question - is this real, or is this just a ride?

Bill Hicks 1961-1994


  1. i wonder too...who am i?and what do i want to interested in finding out the meaning of life....
    i stumbled upon your blog....and thought that most human beings are so similar...

  2. It's all just one big ride! So enjoy it.

  3. I remember first seeing Bill Hicks. He made such an impression on me. He seems to talk a truth, an honesty. A reality I relate very strongly too.

    I wish he were alive to day, I would have been honoured to see he/meet him. But I guess his ride was not meant to be a long one.

    I often think his spirit lives on!
