an odyssey

this is a very small odyssey called life

here one need to strive hard to survive

paths are not always straight and clear

one need a bunch of qualities to steer

the candle of truth shall gleam the fog

honesty shall clear the choking smog

shovel of determination will clear obstacles

the axe of courage shall break the shackles

let’s prepare ourselves to face the challenge

let’s tread slowly and maintain the balance

the length of life remains always undecided

let’s make it meaningful, let’s make it excited
