Every now and then it’s okay
to stray outside the lines,
not everyone needs to live
their life by design.
Some like to wake in the morning
not knowing how their day will end
instead of the regimented structure
of a life of pretend.
They challenge themselves
to live their life on the fly
instead of counting down the hours
to the day they will die.
They realise we have only
one opportunity on this small planet
and they are making sure
they get their fill of life’s banquet.
