YOU CAN! (*Rise)


Life goes by in the blink of an eye

You were a child some time ago

Then you turned into a teenager eager to hit the road

You became an adult, and full of hope you mapped out your goals

Nothing would get in the way of your plans

After all you ruled the world

Middle age arrived like a bullet train

You thought there wasn’t much more to entertain

Embraced old age and let fear overrun all else

You thought you’d never pick up speed again

An inner voice reminded you

It’s only over when you’re not here anymore

Until then there’s still a chance

Let courage kick in; hesitation will subside

Put the past to rest, and rekindle your passion

Decide you’ll go the distance this time

Truth is it doesn’t matter how old you are

As long as you believe, opportunities will arise

Finally it dawns on you

It’s the law of life

You don’t get what you want

Until you’re ready to face the battle

Like a butterfly leaving a cocoon

Spread your wings and fly high

If you fail, just try again

Borrow strength from those who survived worse

They’ll teach you humbleness

And give you guts

What are you waiting for?

There’s no better time

Roll up your sleeves and imagine the finish line

Wake up and welcome another day

Do it differently now, whether you’re young or old

This time just say out loud

I can!”
