Life is a fast horse,
fate crackles the whip,
it gallops the course,
with breezes from source,
steers her aimless ship,
powers reinforce.

Close worn tired eyes,
moisten parched dried lips,
releases deep sighs,
quenched thirst, so dreams fly,
unfasten tight grip,
heart flutters so high.

Enjoy this quick ride,
no need to steer it,
soul silently guides,
fortitude provides,
clear path is now lit,
options open wide.

Inner passions write,
an infinite tale,
that gleams with delight.
tomorrow shines bright.
while raising the sail,
feel solid and right.
