Never Know - (song with recording)

by Maher   Jul 29, 2013

Please listen
Cold and barren is this land
Free possession
Lost amongst the greed of man
And fate, it does not know us
We'll walk alone until time ends

So pull out gently from the snow
A sword and shield to make our stand
I'll push as far as I can go
We can never know what's at the end

I'll push as hard as I can go
We can never know until the end

    Short but powerful piece. Fate doesn't know us we will work alone until time ends what a strong statement too many people wander buffeted without direction blaming circumstances on fate instead of forging forward under their own steam and making their own fate. An excellent piece x

    Thank you good sir! Honestly didn't expect to win that with the others being so good. Thank you in particular for choosing to read this one. It's short, but it is one of the most sincere ones I've written.

    Thanks again, my friend :)

    Firstly, congratulations on your club challenge win - a great piece that I hope to see posted, incomplete or not.
    Secondly, here I am as promised with the first of your three comments - your priceless trophy!
    As a race, we are greedy and selfish and that's not even the worst of it, but it's traits like that that leave us 'walking alone'. Fate does not know us, but it also does not owe us. It is we who have to change things and 'make a stand.'

    A pleasure to read.
