Do you meet and greet the day’s sunrise … Or just survive from nine-to-five?
Do you avoid challenges to try … Or will you dare to take a dive?
Do you step out to exercise … Or just burn out in overdrive?
Do you set free your dreams to fly … Or, too often, see them fade and die?
Do you tempt your soul to strive … Or simply covet more to buy?
Do you celebrate surprise … Or laugh and joke and share high-fives?
Do you care when others cry … Or never hear a quiet sigh?
Do you ponder with the wise … Or ever wonder how or why?
Do you realize your heart relies On sharing truths held in disguise?
When the end of day arrives, Does a blessed sunset light your eyes?
It’s your one life. It’s your one time.
Don’t deprive yourself …
