In Turn


Let me sketch my thoughts on the sand
Watch as the waves destroy
Let me close my eyes for a while
Hear the best moments pass by
Let me know what it is to be dead
To enjoy being alive
Let me justify my existence
By doing something worthwhile
Let me find the difference
My life is supposed to make
Let me be a coward
Prepare for risks I need to take
Let me do things my way
Let me fail repeatedly and learn
Let me watch success go by
I will know it all, in turn

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
