The cynic in death
Tends to reflect
On a lousy and meaningless life
But the purest of mind
Recall the better times
They never live in regret

Lessons in life scar the soul
Blissful are those who learn to let go

Live for tomorrow
Yesterday is gone
Forever strong is the hope of dawn

Lessons in life scar the soul
Blissful are those who learn to let go
Heavy the weight
An existence of hate
The burden of sorrow

The end so far away
There’s so much time
To learn how best to live
To train the mind
And though we’re meant to die
We make our lives
Overcome the past
Leave the grudge behind

I am the will…the power to rise

I am the light
Guide you from wrong
I am the truth
With knowledge be strong
