the trail is dark, where I am going.
behind my back, the lies are fading.
in front of me, the sun is rising.
the way is chosen, the way is mine.
all the burdens on my shoulders.
all the secrets left behind.
what's done can't ever be undone.
another chapter has just begun.
one step forward with no regrets,
a ray of light sparkling through the night.
the light is warm, the past feels cold.
my heart is pumping life into my poor soul.
I left the woods behind,
I'm climbing up the steepest trail.
one step up the hill,
one step closer to the edge.
I look down and I see the future,
I look back and I see the past.
my way has come to an end,
the trail is ending here.
suddenly I feel a pain,
my mind still struggling to resist.
suddenly I can remember,
it hits me hard, it's all coming back.
I feel so small in this big world.
how can I make a difference?
how can I find enough strength?
hate and fear, all around.
we must try to show them,
we must try to forgive them all.
I will sacrifice myself.
it is my gift to a better world.
