Open your eyes,
And see what’s happening,
What’s going on,
In the world.
Who’s dying,
Who’s grinning,
Who’s crying,
And who’s spinning.
See what’s different,
What’s new,
What’s unique,
Things are moving,
And growing,
And going.
Open your mind,
And experience
New things.
New sights,
New sounds,
New leaps,
New bounds.
Don’t be afraid,
To take a chance,
Meet someone new,
Try a new dance.
Go on a trip,
Just get a grip.
Find out who’s important,
And who you can forget,
Who will stay by your side,
And who will run and hide.
Sometimes it’ll be rough,
And sometimes it’ll be tough,
But this is life,
You’ve gotta get out there,
And live it,
Love it,
And learn from it,
Because you’ve only got
One life to live,
So live it to its fullest.
