There is an instant, a surreal moment
A moment when life’s roads no longer offer a fork
The road has become one and there is nowhere to ran.
You realize the end is near and it will come
Despite all odds you start to ran
Like a madman trying not to reach your destination
Like a half cheek kiss you try to hide.
Then you look everywhere for someone to blame
You look for that someone who sold you for money
You look for someone who gave you up due to envy
Desiring your life was theirs, they made a pact
Or so you think, yet your heart knows the truth.
The road will end for us all
No one to blame…
Nowhere to escape…
Your wrinkles a reminder of life passing you by.
Tired you stay in silence, feeling alone and defeated
You now understand you cannot fight time
You surrender to the acceptance of this fact
And you wait for what will come.
Only there, in that instant you come to realize
That life wasn’t the enemy nor it was time
Life is a labyrinth which you thought of as a sentence
But despite your desire to escape
Despite the rollercoaster of up and downs
Life is yours and it is mine
It was always there for us to command.
Now you sit in regret, drinking your sorrows
But I want you to stand
For as long as there is breath in you
You can embrace life.
For our walk on this earth is but blink of time’s eyes
So let us stand tall and drop the masks
Let us dance naked under the moon and the sun
Take my hand and let us walk together
I can’t promise we will leave at the same time
But we can be there for when one of us takes the last sigh.
Leave your mark and fear death not
For a different journey awaits on the other side.
