Life’s an Hourglass

Life is a beautiful ride,

With time it goes up and down.

Stretch your arms high,

Enjoy your ride with a smile.

 

Let the life dope you.

Spread your wings like an eagle,

Dive in the clouds,

Taste free air,

Savour each moment

When you are high.

Swim like a mermaid,

Feel the free water,

Live on the land,

Feel the grains of sand,

Have faith,

Keep the flames

Of hope alive.

Try hard to reach the stars,

Don’t forget who you are.

 

Let the sand go,

Don’t clench it way too hard.

Time won’t run away,

Let the sand fall

Grain by grain,

Part by part.

Each grain is memory of your past,

Cause life’s an hourglass.

 

Sometimes life can be full of happiness,

Sometimes it’ll wash your trace away,

Sadness can make your world dark

But, still you can see light everywhere.

 

Just don’t give up,

Fight your way to the stars.

Smile your sorrows away,

Laugh at your fears,

Blow your fears away,

Don’t lose your hopes,

And stretch your hands once again.

 

Go and touch the stars,

Don’t forget who you are,

Don’t break the bonds,

And grow up way too fast.

Live each moment,

As if it’s your last.

Each grain belongs to memory of your past,

Cause life’s an hourglass.
