the choice of the day

Another new dawn, another new day
Am I the person who's ready to make
The most out life, the time we have left
Or ready to wake up, thinking of debt

Choosing to moan, or choosing to walk
Another step further on this hard test called earth
Am I the person behind the hard line
Or so far ahead with others behind

Each step I take, I know but I think
What is the secret to getting the link
The link to the answers, a link to the fame
A link to win this very hard game

This secret is this, as I looked around
The beauty around, transforming my frown
The birds and the bee's, the trees and these things
The opportunity and experience it brings

The billions of people, this modern world
The billion opportunities, I choose to build
Poetry ,art, music, colours, lessons
all enough in time, to answer any question

So on this realization I know
That if tomorrow happened to show
I may be happy,I may feel unseen
I may be the boy in the Forbes magazine

Im no Nostradamus, I cannot predict
All that I have is a calculated risk
My choice is this, and its oh so brave
To wake up and say,"Today is my day"
