Who knows why we must go through
Some suffering when we speak what’s true
But often that’s the way things roll
We take the flak to reach our goal

And blameless souls can suffer too
For no good reason in our view
We stand amazed at what we see
No answers come for you or me

And yet why are we here at all?
A trillion people build and fall
Unending power which comes and goes
Some days are flat, in some life flows

So take the times which mean the most
And keep them close, but not to boast
For each of us will live and die
In suffering learn, let’s not just cry
