The simple path crowded, straight and narrow

But, forging unguided up the hill towards blazing a new trail

To a simple life and simple dreams, hides a perpetual legacy

Unlike the rising star sticking to every tongue, few forever known

Is the choice made from will or knowing fate, locked in the future’s past


Most fear the risks of going alone, some fear being bound

Yet, those that make it to the top are bound to tumble down

Glory attained, its little matter that one comes raining down

Lost to nothing the horizons of time always advance to win

Chaos bringing to order, the truth is ever knowing
