Till the end of the road
When my body will turn into ashes
To myself forever authentic I’ll remain
And even if the world screams a claim
That my kind is all insane to turn me into
Something that will only bring pain
To my true self no matter the gain
I’ll walk by the path where it rains
‘Cause that’s the road that leads home.
For I shall not end up in chain
As I face the universe my master again
In the glory of daring to be.
