    Encrypted with the DNA of generations before, DNA that tells the tail of past victories and failures
    fragile miracle of life in love, the journey is yours
    The road is clear the road is narrow the road is foggy the road is broad the road is?
    You decide
    The journey is yours
    There are obstacles that I have warned you of and there are obstacles that I have not
    The journey is yours
    If I could run ahead and smooth the way I would
    But the journey is yours
    You must choose a road and make it yours
    Because the journey is yours
    You have deep inside your soul a light that burns bright, for I have seen it in the darkest of nights
    So if the road you choose becomes foggy and dim you reach deep inside your soul
    Bring forward the light and burn the dark from within
    You have been given a map that should anchor you in times of storm
    It has two parts an old and a new and if you study this map it will show you the way
    In case you don’t know I have been watching you and I am honored by your journey
    Travel wisely my child and wear the shoes of honor and love for they will never fail
    The coat of confidence with a lining of humility will make the journey worth traveling
    But whatever you do stand up straight, be ashamed of nothing because the journey is all about mistakes, and when all is said and done, you will always be royalty.
