Uncertain is the future, and swiftly forth it draws;
I know not whether to fear it, or to invite as the dawn.
It seems as though a world is ending, as a new one opens up;
I’m ready to take it on however, for I have longed to feel its love.
My past has treated me well, now I see it as a pearl,
And now that it has built me strong and tall, I am ready for that girl.
