Hamilton, Ont. Canada
Much dust has clogged my grimy coat
As I trekked along the narrow road,
Carried my heavy burden load
That made me careful and remote,
I've traveled deep within my soul
And kept my silence and control.
I've cried with pain, shed many tears,
Shared joyous laughter in my years,
And seen the fist of wrath appear
That made me tremble in cold fear,
And hide from what I must not see,
the pages... of my destiny.
I've walked across the wide expanse
Of blooming fields and barren lands,
In crystal waters washed my hands,
Ran barefoot through the burning sands,
Stood laughing in the pouring rain,
Tomorrow...I will start again.
I'll rid my coat of dust and grime,
Wear it again, because it's mine,
Care nothing of the years or time,
A new direction suits me fine,
And on I'll go in joy or pain
Today...Today I'll start again.
