Life’s journey for some just plods along,
for others, it’s a riot!
Some rather not have too much fun,
they like it rather quiet.
Wherever life’s journey takes you,
be sure to understand,
The dealer does not hold the cards,
and there’s aces in your hand.
That deal of fate does not exist,
you make your own luck here.
So, voyage on with hope and faith,
there’s nothing here to fear.
Journey with your head held high,
with purpose in your stride,
You’re unique and in God’s image,
there’s nothing here to hide.
So, straight, or gay, or black, or white,
step out with self-respect.
With pride, affection, with sorrow and joy,
for with love, we can connect.
Love, God’s great commandment,
love your neighbour as yourself.
Respect each one for who they are,
think of others, not of self.
