Life is God inside of us, the spirit,

Life is the burning sun, cannot live without it.

Life is the whole universe within,

Life is living as if you've never been.

 

Life is you coming out the womb,

And getting a slap across the face.

Life is going through years, then to the tomb,

Without knowing where you stand in life's race.

 

Life is getting yourself a good wife,

And struggling together.

Through the troubles and strife,

Through all sorts of weather.

 

Life is to know yourself, open your eyes,

Life is to love, and be wise.

Life is the flow of the breath,

If it cuts off, then it is death.

 

Life is only to fear the maker,

And keep away from wrong.

Be like a good baker,

Bake your bread, sing a song.
