Take Your Chances


If you could be the next thing you see

Would you do it?

Would you take your chances as a bumble bee

Or would you rather just forget it? 


Life is too short to stay the same

Even if you're great.

Would you switch with another and change your fate?

Because life's too long not to play the game. 


Explore the horizons

And don't stop there.

You can't soar with falcons

If you don't go anywhere.


So if you plan to fight the change

I suggest you look in the mirror.

Think of what you could be

If you'd only let go of your fears. 


And if you are you for your entire life

Chances are you will get bored. 

So why not  take your chances

And be anything from a raindrop to a sword?
