Which Way?

Can you imagine
A life without fear
A life spent wishing
That you were near?

Can you imagine
A life without pain
A life spent hoping
That you felt the same?

Can you imagine
A life without hate
A life spent wond’ring
If we’d been handed another fate

Can you imagine
A life done away
A life that’s not here
That’s never seen the day?

Because a life without
These things, so dark
Holding us down
Doesn’t help us grow
Because how can you know
Which way to fly
If you never know
Which way is the ground?
