  • The Wind Behind You

    There's a tonne of life in the vein
    Waking up every morning and feeling the weight

    But you have to put yourself through the test
    Like passing through a furnace
    You could either make it through, or pass out
    Would you rather sit at home and guess the buyings
    And sellings at the market?

    Since the moment I entered this body, in the enclave of
    Mama's pouch, I've not ceased to move.
    But for every movement, there is a direction,
    Even to the aimless.

    Take heart, 
    Take courage,
    Take joy,
    The rest is for the wind behind you.
