Seize the opportunity life offers, my friend
Otherwise life can become very small.
Broaden your horizons, look beyond what your eye can see.
For the familiar can be enticing and warm the cockles of your heart
But the status quo can be deadening
And life draining rather than sustaining.
Breaking out of the mold of your usual
Can be challenging, sometimes frightening
But it rides a fine line with excitement
Fueling a new aliveness, where sensations are heightened
Passions are ignited and unexpected chance happenings
Produce extraordinary moments that could not have been planned.
So be bold my friend, aim at the moon, catch a star
And dream big,
Keep your eyes and ears open
Your antennae up and turned on
To catch that opportunity with your name on it.
For this is your life and you are the author.
