Brian Taylor - There Is No Other

artist unknown

I was born
just like you …

I came from
I knew not where
on my way to
I knew not where
just like you …

I had the good times
and the bad;
was by turns
unhappy and glad
(just like you) …

Till I determined

Be happy all the time!

from I didn’t want
and making
as I wanted.

This I achieved
(just like you?)
making as I wanted.

But then I saw
that where to led
to the end
of making as I wanted;
to a losing hold of
and a forgetting
beyond all power
of holding and remembering.

So I chose to let go of
before I lost,
and I chose to forget
before I forgot to choose
(and not remember the cost).

And with my now
quite clearly
where to,
I turned around

to see if I could see
where from.

And I found
that where from
is here and now
where I have always been.

And where to
is here also.

(And you?)
