The Road Less Travelled

Follow a map yet follow your heart,
Don’t rush to the end but take it slow from the start
It may take long but enjoy the ride
Put a smile on your face and let it slide.
Make new friends, see familiar faces
Leave your mark on all the places.
See the bad, yet feel the good
It will help you grow as experience should.
Watch the sunset and then its rise,
Experience all life’s lows and highs.
Follow your dreams and live out loud,
Be yourself, stand out from the crowd.
Take the chances that are worth taking,
Make the mistakes that are worth making.
Keep to the path yet make it yours
Achieve your best, improve your flaws.
Love yourself cause you’re all you’ve got,
No one must stop you as this is your one shot.
When you fall get back on your feet
Have the sun on your back and soak up the heat.
Love your family as you love your friends
As they’ll be there for you at your dead ends.
Lift your head and look to the skies,
Stoke your hearts fire before it dies.
Don’t ignore the forgotten, don’t be cold,
Stop standing back, jump forward, be bold!
The road less travelled may be tough
And life’s twists and turns are always rough.
But it is not a weakness to shed some tears
Or scream in fright when you face your fears.
But laugh as hard as you did cry
And be brave and happy till the day you die.
Give a hug or hold a hand
It shares the burden and makes it easier to stand.
Put your walking shoes on and take a chance
Don’t just walk, run and dance!
Life is like a journey, you can’t go back
So keep moving forward, never slack.
So remember as you follow this road unknown
To keep your roots and know where’s home,
As this my fellow traveler is the journey of life
And you only live once so live without strife.
