When the wind blows,
feel it’s strength caress your soul.
Should you falter in its presence,
you will be swept away.
For life is not a smooth glide,
but a long and troublesome road.
Its light does not shine upon those who break like a tree,
but those who sway with the wind.
Should you fail or succeed,
life will not falter.
Whether you break or bend,
the choice is yours.
The Long Road
