just a moment in this lifetime,
just a tragedy ahead.
not knowing where each turn will lead,
within seconds we might be dead.

live each day to the fullest,
do not to stop to wonder why.
do everything your heart desires,
in dreams, reach for the sky.

surprises at every stop sign,
with its share of worng turns and dead-ends.
statistics don't help you with the future,
it only tell you where you've been.

with so many people among us,
there are no certainties.
and all it take is just one person,
to reroute history.

don't waste a single moment,
how very precious they are.
what seems like along way off,
is really not that far.
