In our journey through life and tangles we keep on weaving
In the mountains we climb and the burdens we keep heaving
In the pains we have to endure and hopes we keep on cleaving
In choices we make, paths we take and marks we keep leaving
In our fortunes, misfortunes and in our despair and bereaving
In our trials, tribulations and life blows we keep receiving
In our addictions and pleasures that keep on deceiving
In our deeds, misdeeds; thoughts we keep on perceiving
In our learning and earning a livelihood without thieving
In all our endeavors and dreams we’re set on achieving

Great is the destiny deriving from circumstances so depriving
By those who keep striving, falling, raising, forward keep driving
Never quitting before arriving, where their dreams start thriving

In a world that can be so harsh, cruel and not always forgiving
In our moments of weakness, of doubts and of any misgiving
In our sacrifices, chances, risks and in our taking and our giving
In our struggles, troubles and battles of the life we keep living
In our sins of the past and the mistakes we keep on reliving
In our faith and beliefs and the strength to keep on believing
In our ignorance, blindness, wickedness and our disbelieving
In our fight of good and evil, inner demons that need sieving
In our curses to break and our blessings that need retrieving
In our losses, sadness and pain and the times of our grieving
In our heartfelt prayers and the visions we keep conceiving

Great is the destiny deriving from circumstances so depriving
By those who keep striving, falling, raising forward keep driving
Never quitting before arriving, where their dreams start thriving
