Life is but a breath of fading beauty
Journey not but for a moment
What pen? What thought?
How do you move in time distraught
Give me a moment give me a reign
Give me joy and give me fame
I do not know what lies ahead
Times of wonder? Times of dread?
I plan for happiness
I plan for peace
I embrace the chance for heart’s relief
For fame and glory is life to aspire
Is this the passion – my heart’s desire
How do I live with what is given
Do I only pursue a public opinion
What if I only gain love and friends
Will this be told at my life’s end
Why do I question the thoughts of my heart
Is this the end? Is this the start?
Compare life and fire
Train the eye to beauty’s desire
Question what you seek to aspire
Do I only value material things
Joy and pity does both it bring
Turn your head from mindless things
With honor, love, with hope please sing
I know I’m meant for something great
I know my life the world will shake
Who am I? Why do I suffer?
How do you tell a mind to get tougher
With heart so great and mind so strong
I can’t believe this life is gone…
