This Journey of Mine

I’ve been walking
All my life
Down a path that does not end.

The road is long
And the wind blows hot
And my feet, they drag me on.

From the sands
The sun does rise
And the heat, it breaks my mind.

My skin is burning
My eyes are sore
And my feet are blistering red.

And if you asked me
Once again
To talk about a shorter path,
I will tell you
Once again
The same old story all the while.

Because the path to success
Is long and hard
And the way is warm and hot.
