Live life to the full
In a way to demonstrate
Although a greater Power may rule
You are captain of your fate.

But captain not in proud mien
Since you cannot choose your Path,
This is given, and in life’s scheme
You are here to shape the draft.

Shape it as a craftsman would
With all your skill and effort set
By your conscious will that could
Give the World your epithet.

Give respect to all you meet
But talk to those you love,
In such words there’s music sweet
And love becomes your treasure trove.
