Our lives are like a motion picture
being cast each day we awake
With no thoughts of, in how it will be
nor even what we may have to take

We launce out sometimes on our own
with great hopes to fulfill our dreams
Then before we know it a snare appears
for at times that's way it seems

I wonder about things when it's called luck
seeing many count good things as such
I have heard someone say if this was so
why didn't the rabbit have as much

They relied on his foot to give them worth
now he's left hopping on three legs
Well I guess it didn't work too well for him
I wonder if, they fixed him up with a peg

Wherever we go or wherever we be
we have within us to reach the top
and that wilderness can become an Island
so don't let anything cause you to stop

the old wilderness can be doubt in your mind
it can be fear, you let enter your heart
and those you allow to discourage you
whenever you have a mind to start

Why not go on and claim, your new wilderness
filled with wonders that eyes can't see
Walk tall and keep your head held high
and claim what you want to be
