Gotta get up and try

It takes risk to venture into the unknown.

What might you encounter?

Who would you meet?

What lies beyond the horizon?

So many questions, so little answers.


Yet sometimes, taking a bit of risk proves that one is still living, breathing.

The wrong turn may not be so wrong after all,

And a detour may only lead to a pleasant surprise,

Something unexpectedly good may come out from that leap into the horizon,

You’ve gotta get up and try, try, try,

Gotta get up and try, try, try.


Induce me in my melancholy,

Just a little pondering for thee.
