Have you ever stood beneath the stars
In silence, in solitude
Drinking in the mystery
And the loneliness of existence?
Have you ever been humbled
By the endless vastness of the universe
And keenly felt
Have you ever been face to face
Do you know in your bones
That the grave awaits?
That one day your name
And even your greatest deeds
Will be washed away without a trace?
Warrior – tomorrow is not guaranteed
Oblivion is all that’s sure
This moment just may be your last.
Waste not another second
Remembering the failures of your past!
Seize this day
And don’t ask why
This life was never yours to keep.
Embrace your fate
With head held high!
Stand at the edge of the great unknown…
