As I grew older, I get to ponder
On significant things that came to be in my life,
Unlike when I was young and restless
Trivial things seem to occupy my mind.
The twists and turns of this journey
Made me conquer valleys and steep hills,
Overcame the dragons and beasts in my dreams.
As we travel back in time
We recall vivid memories of what our lives used to be
Things were so simple from way back then.
Men seem to just complicate life
When happiness just means living
Life one day at a time,
Relish the remarkable ride
Embrace the upturns and downturns,
of this circle of life!
