The Choice

Updated on March 3, 2013

The world is full of wonder

Valleys, mountains and seas

But the biggest wonder of them all

Is what you see in me

I may be brave

But I'm not wise

Courage is what I need

To take the roads I always do

And stay the real me

I'll walk these road all of my days

In search of the rainbows end

As I believe that dreams come true

Different from other men

So if you want those feet of yours

To stride paths next to mine

Together we can chase those dreams

Not knowing what we'll find

For most this is a forbidden route

Most take paths of safer kinds

So make your choice

And make it now

Or you'll be left behind
