While swimming
Through the pools of perdition
One longs for a better day
Where happiness cheers
With no condition
And all responsibilities
Will fade away

And dragging
Through the depths of hell
One dreams of a greater stay
A paradise like life
Where everything goes well
And the meaning of karma
Does not sustain

But in the dessert
You are dragging now
So stand still were you are
And feel the blazing pain
While everything
Of no importance
Burns for good away

Until then you cannot crawl up
As a wounded man standing
Who carries his injuries
With dignity
Until then you cannot grow up
As an adult man knowing
He is always creating
His own reality
