Life is a journey of intense ups and downs
a turbulent ride thick with grins and with frowns
The lucky ones don’t have to endure it alone
navigating the route through a bustling home
The stress of the world has increased its fast pace
constantly urging us into the race
To achieve, to improve to always succeed
forcing a choice will you follow or lead?
What hat do you wear and who are you today?
When you’ve worked through your list is there
still room to play?
Remembering family comes first every time
maintains the focus to not cross the line
The rat race is worth it
as I step back to see
that there’s much more at stake now,
it’s no longer just me!
