This Path Won’t Be An Easy One

We always have a choice. We always get to choose which path to take in our life. Often we are not sure which one we actually want to follow. And we most definitely never know where it will take us even if we have a plan. We hope to get to where we want to be. We will do our very best to get there. But we never know what will be ahead of us. We never know who we will meet in the process of walking down this path. We don’t know who will stick to us and who will disappear. We will not know for sure, who will turn on us and who would give their life for us. We have no clue what kind of challenges we will encounter.

None of the options we have will always be an smooth ride. None of the paths we choose to follow will be an easy one. There will always be rocks (maybe only small pebbles) in our way, obstacles to overcome.

But isn’t that exactly what life is all about? Making a decision and moving forward? Overcoming obstacles, learn from them and move on?

There’s a song playing in the background. As song I enjoy listening to for many years already. A song that has a good message. Unfortunately it’s not in English…

Here are the lyrics the way I’d translate them:

So I walked along this street, and the street lead me to me
The song you sang last night was playing inside of me
Only a couple more steps and I was there with the key to the door

This path won’t be an easy one. This path will be rocky and difficult.
You won’t agree with many, but this life offers so much more.

It was only a short moment, an instant I was not there.
Then I took a little step and everything made sense.

This path won’t be an easy one. This path will be rocky and difficult.
You won’t agree with many, but this life has so much more to offer.

Some kick you
Some love you
Some give themselves up for youSome bless you
Don’t set sail
if the wind flares the sea

Some kick you
Some love you
Some give themselves up for you
Some bless you
Don’t set sail
if the wind flares the sea

This path won’t be an easy one. This path will be rocky and difficult.
You won’t agree with many, but this life has so much more to offer.

There is not an incredibly long message in this song. What I like though is the message that our path won’t always be an easy one. That you will encounter many people and not everyone will be your friend. It doesn’t matter though. What counts is you and only you. In the end you will be the only one that can find the true you and let this person out.

You will not have to agree with everyone. Life has a lot to offer, even if people are not happy with the real you. You will have people who support you and will take you for who you really are. Others will try to keep you down. You don’t have to fight against for recognition with people who will never get you. There will always be the ones that do get you.

It’s a lesson to learn, isn’t it? Maybe I do read too much into the lyrics but it’s the message I get.

It’s okay if not everyone likes us. And it’s okay if we don’t like everyone. It’s important to choose the people you want in your life and also your battles wisely.

  1. A very, very good song which I love a lot for its meaning! I agree fully! Life is about learning and growing and therefore, we need challenges and obstacles. Isn’t that what also makes us feel successful, to overcome our own limits?
