Frederick Douglass
Venture deep into each promised day 
And live each one as if it were your last. 
Don't let those precious moments slip away. 

Be like the child in constant learning play 
And feel the way between sensations vast. 
Venture deep into each promised day. 

Be like the youth and not let risk outweigh 
Ending each romance as a broken hearted enthusiast. 
Don't let those precious moments slip away. 

Be like the conscious parent in the family way 
Tracking every step their child amassed. 
Venture deep into each promised day. 

Be like the wise old grandparent so grey 
From pondering every question ever asked. 
Don't let those precious moments slip away. 

Be like those gone into quintessential decay 
Now tracking ethereal voyages steadfast. 
Venture deep into each promised day. 
Don't let those precious moments slip away.
