Every morning when we awake

We all make a choice or decision,

And depending on the quality of our thoughts

It will determine our true vision.

If there’s a traffic jam in our head

With all incoherent thoughts,

There’s a windy road with no u-turn

With assumptions of all sorts.

If we’re stuck in neutral all day long

We may just receive a parking fine,

Since our heart and soul has been stagnated

And we’re sadly left behind.

To accelerate into overdrive

Is ambitious but also unwise,

If we haven’t thoroughly prepared

To sift the truth from the lies.

Sometimes we can be stuck in reverse

When we refuse to forgive or forget;

To let go of our hurtful past

Or to settle all regrets.

And when we’re in second gear

There’s a mountain we need to climb;

It’s when discipline and determination

Has trained our heart and mind.

When we encounter a flat tyre

It’s a blessing in disguise;

When our plans could lead to trouble

And when our choices are not wise.

There is a driving force

That will never fail or break down,

As it’s on the long and narrow path

That leads to an eternal crown.
