We all climb the mountain of life,
Not only to feel the sunshine, but to feel alive.
Some camp down below to listen to the murmurs of the drum and fife,
And that is OK if all they want to do is survive,
But what if you want more of life?
With our own philosophy under the arm,
Higher and higher we climb with our conscience unarm,
We don’t think about the harm
We just want to get out of the collective farm.
Some have reached the highlands of understanding,
Still come back only to get in line for a new branding.
And as they accept their fate
They say “Don’t bother, what was up there was only bait,
All you need to know is deep within,
Nothing…… Nothing is a sin.”
Could it be that the meaning of it all was just to enjoy the view,
To feel the smile of the wind, the wisdom in the clouds, and the meaning in the blue?
Camp down or climb high, the only thing that matters is to take advantage of your youth
Now that…………………… that is the only truth.
