Clear your head
Calm your mind
Leave all your worries and troubles behind

Look to the future
Learn from the past
Cherish the present
For the die’s already cast.

Destiny decided long, long ago
How our lives were meant to be
Would we find luck?
Would we find love?
We’d have to wait and see

But we have the choice to passively wait
Or actively take the reins
The former may save us from embarrassing mistakes
The latter may bring us many gains

For if we never take a chance
Or ever dare to dream
How are we to ever know
If things are as good as they seem?

For our life is in our hands
And we control its destiny
Each one’s the maker of many plans
And future lives to be
