Reach For A Life Less Ordinary

Make 2018 Your Year

Life is wealth
Filled with possibility 
But do we make it a reality 
We deplete our credit in years 
Shedding tears without knowing 
In unconscious disrepair 
Perhaps it’s a lack of care 
Like our fathers before 
We get on the treadmill 
Making each day a chore 
Consuming ourselves 
With the repetition and the drudgery 
Becoming a bore 
Leaving us in purgatory 
Fearing choices, change, others 
We settle into the mundane 
The precious gift of life ticking away 
We look down 
In a trance of a not so merry dance 
Resisting the freedom to choose 
Often leaving it to chance 
Making excuses, procrastinating 
Those dreams in our heads 
Remain unsaid 
We lose 
We put off today for tomorrow 
But at what sorrow 
Don’t settle for less
In 2018 
Make a deal
Reach for that life less ordinary
