One road was given
Seven roads were seen
The future of the past cast a shadow because
The arrow of the time seem to bend
As past, present and future become one

One road went east
Where there would be a great feast
One road went west
Where there would be a great test
One road went north
Where everything would be made clear
One road went south
Where any man would fall
Even if he called out!

One road was eternal and central to life but
People were scared to go through it because
Its entrance was covered with darkness—
However, many forget our growth is in darkness!
