Life is waking to a brand new day,
Hoping peace and joy come their way.
It means sometimes the shedding of tears,
Or being afraid and having many fears.

They all must play this game of chance,
No matter what the circumstance.
For they were born to journey on,
To see what this road holds here and beyond.

It may bring them triumph or victory,
It may be filled with freedom or greed.
Love and friendship it may hold in store,
On their fate could be, strife and war.

Whatever it brings, they must give their best,
Love life to the fullest with love and zest.
Don't waste their time fretting over the worst,
Just live life daily, as if it were their first.
