Beyond The Road

How the least likely of people can be the one to succeed (a bit cheesy, but still a nice message)

I was never the strongest, or the first to cross the line

My voice never soared to heaven's ears, or did I outsmart the gods

I never dared to dream or dared to believe

That mine were the dreams that'd be achieved 

 

I knew faces and their judgement damning

Favours exchanged even just to taunt me 

I was done in and the weight of the world collapsed around me

Miraculously my honour and strength never broken 

 

Sentenced to misery

Swimming in the rivers of fire, yet unscorched

I will reach beyond the road and the tower

To a glory never seen before

 

Looking back and now the tide has turned

And I find it is my name that's now revered 

I never dared to dream or barely breathe 

Memories never erased and wrongs never forgiven

Wiser words turned to falsehood, and now I am king

 

Blinded to the last, and I was left to the wolves

Shining through and gaining fast, and my blood begins to boil

I came through the fires and now I ascend

Because the self-made prison will fade in the end

 

Sentenced to misery

Swimming in the rivers of fire, yet unscorched

I will reach beyond the road and the tower

To a glory never seen before

 

The End
