There’s something in the air today.
Or is it somewhere else?
Perhaps it’s not in what I breathe,
But inside of me myself.
I have my lazy moments.
I procrastinate, I slack.
But now a fiery spark’s been lit,
my slothfulness is cracked.
I was anxious of the future,
And stuck on yesterday.
But now I know there is no then.
Just now, and just today.
I’m finally awake! I feel.
Where has my life been spent?
Asleep and lost inside a dream,
Knee-deep in wet cement.
But now that I know better,
My eyes are open wide.
Now’s the time to shift my sights,
Repave the roads I ride.
So do not sit around, my friend,
Till someone cracks the whip.
Get up and change those sails yourself,
Be captain of your ship!
