We look for a way to quench our thirst
Sometimes withering in a desert devoid of emotion
The happiness surrounds us but the truth is hidden
Everyone is a soldier with hundreds of medals

The moments beyond sadness are a celebration
The day without it is a momentous occasion
The hidden truth is our badge of courage
A smile is the ceremony of life

The two extremes both begin and end
The fire will burn the water will burn
The water will soothe the fire will soothe
In the middle is a murky pool

Our cup overflows with abundance
The fresh feeling of life fills our existence
The hidden truth surrounds our happiness
We are rewarded without a request

We celebrate our moments
Our occasions become our days
Our courage reveals the truth
Our life smiles upon us
