I pondered once what the future would hold
But decide to go have fun
You see I knew someday Iíd be bold
By believing in God only Son

The circle of life has no beginning or end
Around and around it goes
For the circle of life knows how to bend
Never breaking because of the woes

We start as a child and then become an adult
Some back to a child again
They chose this because of all the assault
Went back before hurt began

If only those hurts could just go away
Iíve heard my mommy cry
So from my childhood Iíll never stray
Adulthood I will not try

I donít care what you say about growing old
Your words you canít make me hear
As Iíve grown older Iíve become very bold
And my life's missions become very clear

My twilight years I can only anticipate
Since I am so very young
For I can see myself at ninety-eight
Still running and going strong
