Make life a ride

Make life a ride, I saw on a wall


I smile and think: yup, that makes me feel strong!

to take life in my hands, make my dreams come true
and if I try to do it, my God - so can you!

because life is a ride and what lies there ahead
an avenuic grande highway or thousand tiny paths instead

how to know where to go on intersections and signs
what to choose, you might ask, straight ahead? well, you might

still get lost for a while, but trust me that's ok,
' because still it's your choice - do it your way!

you are in charge and you make it come true
yes, some bumps, and some turns, still: the boss is you

but just know: 
some things you control, and some things you cannot
still: never loose faith that you really will not

loose power - of how your own ride will be
pssst: if all of them can, then - so can we!

keep your hands on the wheel for as long as you can
glance aside, check the view, count the stars, oh my man

- for a slow ride, or a rally, what you want it to be
cruise along, don't look back - look ahead - don't you see

you wake up every morning with your engines run free
just be bold and be loud, be what you want to be

- I can glide on still water - only me and the sea
and my loved one perhaps, paddling next to me


I can run up a mountain, just as steep as can be
and a warm hand holding mine,
smiling: sweetheart, you and me 

a bubbling laughter when in the forest deep
hand in hand with a joy to keep
we come over a sign written by a happy man:
"tested and approved by a 80 kg heavy Senior Citizen":

all in all my dear friend, make your own life Your ride
it is yours, so please own it, either slowly or wild
live it embrace it 
it is yours 
you decide
