Because I know I won't regret
That dream which I have once had
Of telling life I'm fine, I'm not sad,
I weep and say I haven't wept.
Here I am working without reward
Looking back and looking forward
For a time in which hurdles cease
And a place in which I feel at ease.
Until then, I continue to dream
And walk forward on the beam
Removing thorns and resisting
And if I die, I die for something.
