We can find a way towards a new life.
Why me? Upon this tired day,
Are the only words I want to say?
It feels today that all has gone wrong,
And in my life, I do not belong.
Upon this seat I now sit and stare,
And think of the life that once was there,
When blue skies ruled and the birds did fly,
And the sun rose gloriously up high.
Now it seems that everything’s gone grey,
My life has gone a different way.
That all my plans have fallen through,
Where, my world once bright, is now so blue.
But have I really got this view right?
Are my dreams truly out of sight?
This may not be the future I planned,
But this is my life, where I now stand!
I do not have to sit here and cry,
But instead, look up at that dark sky,
And seek for the stars that live up there,
And let them guide me to, who knows where?
Perhaps I may find a better path,
That will lead me to where I can laugh.
That those first plans were not right for me,
So let’s start walking and go and see.
