Do you ever feel stuck in a rut
glue is your best friend
keeping new doors shut
with no room to bend?
When you look around
as you walk down the street
do you actually stare at the ground
avoiding new faces to greet?
We’ve all traveled down this road
and are familiar with its curves
but isn’t it time you showed
some new adventurous verve?
What better time for transformation
then the present, here and now
to yourself, make a bold proclamation
and to all of those around
Once you alter your tedious course
you’ll be jumping with exhilaration
you’ll feel absolutely no remorse
instead, a new and wonderful revelation
