Life is a journey

Life is a journey

Life is a journey through many terrain
From gardens of pleasure to deserts of pain
From an ocean of love to a jungle of hate
From mountains of glory to canyons of fate

There’s a highway for joy and a highway for sorrow
A road for today and a road for tomorrow
So choose your path wisely and walk with care
If you follow your heart, you’ll find your way there
Man wandelt, on a journey

I’ve been to the garden and planted seeds there
I’ve been to the desert and felt the despair
I’ve swam in the ocean and drank of it’s wine

I climbed up the mountain to touch the sky
I went to the canyon and started to cry
I’ve traveled both highways,
Both today and tomorrow
I’ve basked in the joy and wallowed in sorrow

My path has been chosen and
I’ve walked it with care
I followed my heart and I’m on my way there
So I’ll just keep walking till I find what I’m after
To mountains and oceans and
Gardens of laughter.

The road of an artist

Wondering about the life I live.
The journey I follow in the exploration of my thoughts.
Am I there where I need to be?

The meaning of my life is brought by this deep river inside of me.
It crawls and takes ground on its way.
It brings me on places where for a moment I wish to stay.

But then the change comes inside of me
My journey isn’t finished yet.
My thoughts, my ideas and need to express
I am devoted, I have dreams and questions to explore, I let my mind set me free.
