This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.
I sit myself upon the hill and see the happenings that take place under the sun,
What is man and what does he worth?
Like a tender shoot sprouts he comes,
His days like the twinkling of an eye,
His exit like chaff blown away,
His body after all, which he had enjoyed the pleasure of life upon is worth not more than two pans of dust after decomposition;
For he shall return to dust, which he is made of.
When a star falls, a soul goes home;
Whether to Heaven, perhaps to Hades, who knows?
Death how inevitable it is!
Whether a man fulfils his purpose or not, he will surely die;
When the maker says the time of a man is up
Can he spend one more second?
Why are you feeling so sad?
You’ve got the light, you’ve got no worries;
Tell me your problems,
Share with me your challenges,
I have one solution to offer,
Shine your light and don’t be afraid,
No matter little a light is,
It brings end to extreme darkness,
A little drop becomes an ocean,
As short as a dwarf is the lifetime of a man,
Your light is your destiny,
Unlock your potential, let it illuminate;
Life is a race that everybody runs,
Some will run fast and some slowly,
Everyone will get there,
It’s a shame if you give up before the finish line.
In my heart I desire a bright future,
I have the vision of life in abundance,
I’ve seen tomorrow, I know where I’m going;
I stand tall, I won’t be bored;
I’ve come to fulfil my dreams,
I stand tall, I won’t be shaken;
I’ve come to fulfil my desires,
I stand tall, it won’t be long,
I will surely attain my lofty destination.
