In God I Trust
I see no other way but pray
No one else listens but God.
They came to me as friends
And being friends, betrayed me.
Oh, stir the dying embers of my life
Set me ablaze, rejuvenate me.
Burn me, burn me down to ashes,
Phoenix-like I may again rise.
In the twilight of my life, on the roadside,
Let this wayfarer pitch his camp and rest.
A long and winding road is life,
O my heart, tell me an engaging tale.
Whence it comes, whither does it goes,
This never-ending road, no one seems to know.
Life is transient but the spirit to live is sublime
We go this way but once, Ah, never more.
Death is absolute and the rest – an eternal void:
Sans hope, sans fear, sans hell, sans paradise.
In the master design of the Cosmos
Seek thy place -- Who art thou and why?
