Embark on an abyss of self discovery.....uncertain of your safe return....
Yes its scary to think you only have one life
One life to spend with one family plus a husband or a wife
And after that God only knows, If there is a God,

If i fear my own fate
Looming near my frozen state
Then who am i to question destiny?
As a coward I lack the best in me 
Then where do i go? From this abyss?
More than half my life.. I'll dismiss 

If i turn to face my fears 
Will all be well through my tears?
Will the purest symbol detest my sign?
Will it obey or take its time ?

If I pray everyday 
Every hour i will pay 
For the cowardice that i possess 
The recklessness that brought this mess

If i turn around and say 
My fault Im sorry 
Is that okay?
Its not nearly enough to please them 
Find the message within my reason 

I must be strong 
and carry on 
but my strength is dubbed with guilt 
I have no power to pluck the flower their leafs will start to wilt 

The times of life, The sands of time
My life on a thin cord line 
The time to change, Never will I be the same 
The strain of family and all its aspects 
Who will care when i no longer exist?
Who would dare alter this course ?
Surely a fool with no remorse 

Allow me now through this please 
To make peace 
And achieve my dreams 
So my traits may abruptly cease 
Subtract my burdens, set me free 

Vanquish all my mistakes from memory 
Extinguish my life ardently 
Evicerate your expectancy 
Erase me entirely
So soon i should rest in peace 
Knowing i leave behind a legacy 

A perfect legacy 
Of hard-work and dedication 
Strong love and motivation 
The ability to do whats right 
Not merely walk by, but stop the fight 
The spirit of honesty in all its glory 
Neither rancorous, malignant, Pernicious or defamatory 

Love your family 
Have no doubts 
Dont think youre halfway in, but halfway out 
Live life with no regret 
Mistakes are done- no time to fret 
Past is gone - live in now 
Follow me ill show you how 

Yes its scary to think you only have one life 
One life to spend with one family plus a husband or a wife
And after that God only knows, If there is a God, the love he'll bestow
Will surely carry you through to see your loved ones at the gate 
The same who would worry if you were running late 
The same that encouraged you to grow 
The family that embedded everything as you know 

You only know them for this life 
After that, its goodbye 
To beat death- leave something good behind 
Something someone will surely find 
To remember what a great person you were 
Submit your memories, your legacy unfurled
Live like you have no time
Make your mark upon this world
...And this is mine....
