I'M GOING MY WAY

I am going my away
Not dark not far as
they say
 No one has gone
there before
“Oh brother that
way” they say
Goes beyond those
smoky hills, perhaps
further…
You won’t go alone,
that’s father

For accompany I
haven’t asked for
any my friends
This is my way, not
mine with friends
There might be
warriors to ambush
me
There might be
beasts waiting for
me
There might not be
anything to stop me
Because no one has
gone there before me
And you who opens
your big mouth to
speak to me
Don’t you dare
follow me!
Coz this one here,
is mine!

Now I am gone and
forgotten
But there people not
to forget me
Coz they saw my back
fading away
Into the dark and
they prayed
But let them pity me
not in their prayers
Let them dream me
not in their dreams
For I have found joy
in my journey:
Some drums to beat
as I go
Some fruits to pick,
so
Call it a
stone-rough pathway
Or anything, with
your quick tongue
let me say
But this is the only
way I can go
therefore,
I am not a sightless
or a lost runaway
