This Much I Know

Routes are unmapped

And the journey is long

But you’ll know where you’re going

And the places you belong


There’ll be choices you’ve made

That you wish to forget

And there’ll be others you retell

Just as oft as you’re let


Experiences will shape you

With their pattern and design

And when you join up the dots

You can rejoice and not whine


Long days can be followed

By nights spent awake

As you accept your own truth

And you stop being fake


There’s no curtain call here

In this show we call life

Stepping out of your way

Is how to live without strife


It’s for real, no rehearsals

It won’t always make sense

In a world full of players

Packed crowded and dense


But there’s this that I know

That I’ve seen on the faces

Of the people looking busy

As they rush to their places


There’s no fixed destination

I repeat, as it’s true

As your meaning in life

Is defined just by you

Yesterday’s gone

This journey is yours

As you steer its course

Atlas shrugging his shoulders

There is nothing to force


Do you get it?  It’s simple

Feel it in your bones

Your ego isn’t responsible

It’s thinking that condones


Be free of opinions

Of how everything must look

Write your new chapter

Create your own rulebook


Dream big with your life

Please dare to be bold

You’re allowed to be great

To win your own gold


Yesterday’s gone

Bid it farewell

Tomorrow is far off

It’s in this moment you dwell
