‘Was a child when I took off to meet an angel
My only expectation was beauty beyond dreams
Maybe a princess, or a lovely rapunzel
That was all that I could find within me
Disappointment came, though not so complete
For my travel led me to an old lady
Poor but kind, stern but sweet
Fed me, as if I were her own baby.

‘Was young when I set off to meet a monster
My only expectation was torture beyond dream
A red horned demon, or a deadly prankster
That was all that I could find within me
Disappointment came, though not so complete
For my travel led me to a bald fat man
Rich and cruel, hot and angry
Pushed me into his cunning poisonous plan.

‘Was an adult, when I set off to meet the God
My only expectation was a lifelong peace
A welcoming hand, at the gates of the Lord
That was all that I could find within me
Disappointment came, though not so complete
For my travel had led me to a little child
Sweet and funny, enjoying happily
Blessed me, oh lord, left me overjoyed. 

Now old in age, I know so well
What took me ages to understand
My long old life, rang a shrill bell
What I want you, today, to comprehend
You may travel through miles of rains and sands
And then reach your destination
But what matters is not where you stand
It is but the journey that comes within.
