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.
