Like life, like a knife
Like air, like water,
Like snow, Like fire, like time,
I am not good neither bad,
I am just what I am.
I could be loved or hated,
Welcomed or fought,
It’s all ok with me,
It’s all the same.

I am not your friend
Neither you are my enemy,
I am just what I am
And I go where I go
And I take the world where I go.
You can sit on my shoulders
Or follow me with a frown
Or be dragged behind me
Or lay down in my path
And try to make me stop
But I promise you this
I never stop.

I am the train you ride
Filled with excitement and hope
Imagining the possibilities of a new journey
Or with tears of separation and fears of unknown,
Or I am the train you miss
Or sometimes even die underneath.
It all depends on you,
On where you place yourself with me.
I am not ruthless or kind
I am just me, just what I am,
I stop for nobody,
I carry the world with me.
I am change, you see!
