I walked the path the gods ordained,
I chose each step with care,
The way grew straiter 'til at last
There was no further passage there.

The sun sank low. I came prepared
But, when the darkness closed around,
The match I struck to light my torch 
Had also burned my bridges down

No stars arose, no guide appeared,
No bird sang in no hallowed tree;
When I let go of everything
All that was left was me.

And then I knew I was the way.
I was the torch that lit the night,
I was the star, I was the guide,
I was the truth and light.
