I would walk in this life
Wandering into darkness and light
If I were to leave this world,
Did I leave a mark or did I just exist?
Was I a royal? Was I a simple merchant?
Was I a person loved by a family?
Would anybody miss me?
Would I change the world?
Or would I just simply go with the flow?
Did I even reached what is worth of me?
Or did I just waste my life?
I would look into the eyes of the exist
There was more sadness than happiness.
Did they dream for a brighter future?
Or did they just regret not doing the best they can?
The world is so big, yet in terms is so small
You can't do everything you need
Nor can you have everything you want.
Yet we dream big then give up.
I would watch those people,
They shine like the sun,
They were adored by people,
Yet many of them did not last
Would I leave my mark?
Can I shine and last?
Would I be happy more than sad?
Can I achieve my dream?
I watch the world
There were more followers than leaders
There were more people who sit than work
Only a handful dream big
They were all realistic
Ambition is bad, they say
People are afraid to say sorry
A sign of weakness they say
Be good and you'll never get rich
Be honest and no one will remember you
Is being bad the only thing they can remember?
Can I leave a mark of being good?
Nobody is perfect, I know that
But it doesn't hurt to try?
To be a good person? A person of trust?
Honest and never be afraid to take the blame?
These harsh times, we blame everything
The good things are not worth it
Everybody wants to be somebody
Everybody don't want to be a nobody
But maybe just once,
I could leave a mark of goodness,
And dream big dreams and never to fear to try
So would you...
