Life?! what you make it
is what you want it to be
wonderful places that you can go
beautiful things just there to be seen

You think you know what you want but you dont know if its right
you try to find your path & follow your light

But sometimes it changes 
the path that you choose
sometimes the light fades
your direction you loose

But then comes something different 
something in its place
a new direction to follow
another friend, a different face

Its all about moving on
it happens all the time
your life will not stand still
you cant just let things pass you by

It may be very short, and it maybe very long
but no-one is here forever & to waste it would be wrong

Somethings they seem scary when you dont know what they'll bring
what effects they'll have on you, your ways & your routines

Dont worry if you make mistakes & things they dont go right
there's a word they call 'experiences' & they're just part of one calle LIFE.

    Very wise message. Not one I listen to often enough. You could look at life with such amazement and wonder. It would look so bright. So full of promise and hope. There would be nothing stopping you fulfilling your potential. No one could hold you back unless you let them. This is the type of life I would want to lead, if only I understood it's the only life worth leading. thank you. - Yoni
