Standing on the edge of eternity
Looking back on reality;
Can't go back and change the past,
Rewrite the play, nor change the cast.
Turn the pages of years gone by;
A time to laugh and a time to cry.
Peek into windows of your destiny
And then you'll see the irony.
Though your life may seem just a compromise;
Take each step with open eyes.
Open your soul and then you'll see--
For you're free the minute you choose to be.
