Your Canvas

seize the moment, as if it is your last,
do not let the things you love slip away,
become who you want to be, leave your past,
live for the day, do the things that you say,
make your dreams real, follow your heart,
conquer your fears, the things that hold you back,
learn to paint your canvas, make your own art,
let it become habit, find your true knack,
seek out who you are, who you want to be,
leave others behind, who don't accept you,
forget the world of loss, learn to be free,
enter a world so small, a world of few,
live by the edge of the blade you create,
don't let others tell you you cant be great.
