A journey that reaches to live
Full of happiness and sorrows it gives
Life is a journey that never ends
Most of the things in life come with a cost
During the process, the way is obstruct
Once again failed and lost
Creates faith, courage to rise up
Gives us aim and raise the name
Teaches to smile behind the tears of pain
Always creates a hope that allows you to copy
Beautiful these four words give.
Life was paused between happiness and success
To find the way, I was restless.
Those days, I had a crush
Uncertain reasons made me hush.
Heart broke like a mirror
And left some track without any direction.
To know the way, I tried very well
In mind those pieces of mirror, I was in hell.
And the day arrived, I feel about a thing
Thinking for that track, I proved direction was nothing
To join my heart, I followed the path: happiness
Forgetting the past, I dragged myself forward.
