When I came into this world from a floating dream,
I learnt to cry because I had to learn to breathe.
That was the first clue that it was not going to be easy,
Growing up in this world would be a task too heavy.
I learnt to smile when I saw others smile at me,
Do what the world is doing is what I could see.
I had to fall many times before I could learn to walk,
It also took a while before the mystery was unlocked.
I wish to share a few cheat codes of life,
Everyone knows them but they forget to apply.
First of all be thankful for the life you got,
It could be much worse than you thought.
Remember the roller coaster that made you queasy,
Just like that life is never going to be easy.
It’s necessary that you prepare yourself for the worst,
But please don’t forget to hope for the best.
Hope is what makes the world go round,
Dreams are what make you float above the ground.
So dream big and aim for the stars,
It doesn’t matter if you don’t get very far.
At least you moved on from where you were set,
Because being stuck in the same place will bring only regret.
Don’t lose heart when your dreams don’t come true
The journey was important and not the destination that was due.
Learning to move on is just as important as moving up,
I know the past is haunting but it has already burnt up.
“Don’t let it consume your present”, I would say,
The day that really matters after all is today.
Now you worry about what will happen tomorrow,
Think about this what if there is no future to borrow.
What you do today determines your future
So focus on today, be here now and forever.
Life is a game designed by a power beyond us,
It is probably just a test so that we can be assessed.
The aim is to go from one level to the next,
And not lose hope or faith when perplexed.
You just have to learn that failure is not a fall
Falling is when you refuse to try again and begin to crawl.
Time is the only constant variable in this unpredictable game,
If you manage to keep up with it, your life will never be the same!
