For your purpose is intertwined with mine

Primrose And Pride

There goes Youth skipping down a winding path
Urchins, how they are amused by their own shadows and glances

The path is primrose; promises around the bend
Flowers bloom, birds sing, and joys are your friend
The melody of life whispers in your ears
Seeing nothing; fearing nothing; dancing with yourself
