Of all the things you can do,

promise yourself you will try.

It doesn’t even matter if you win,

as long as you apply.


No one can ask anything of you except yourself.

If you don’t want to make a move,

it’s you who’ll be left out.


So don’t allow yourself to miss out on important things.

You may not feel that they are worthy,

yet they can turn out to be your wings.


Experiences make us whole,

and make life feel fulfilled.

And when it’s time to look back,

don’t let yourself feel unskilled.


So don’t allow yourself to stop,

for no apparent reason.

Promise yourself you will try,

and take on any season.
