The Promised Land

With never ending dreams

And never ending sorrows

Began a life

A life full of mystery

And misery

That life cruised through waves

Waves of Pleasure

Waves of disturbing instances

Waves of crest and trough 

Leading in all directions

Without any clue

But for every down he meets

There were some ups

Promising him some

Making him believe of

The promised land

The land of no misery

The land of no sorrows

And the land of pleasure ...


crest and trough* - meaning, 'ups and downs'
