own it......(revisited)

get it
hit it
live it
breath it

own it
wear it
out
share it

we all have
something
that eats us
from the inside

we have
a fire that burns
bright within
the belly

there's never
enough time
to fulfill the needs
of the spirit

there's never
too much passion
for dreams
to be real

get it
hit it
live it
breath it

own it
wear it
out
share it

I once thought
life was a race
now I think
I know better

The real winners
don't run faster
but know when
to halt

Stopping time
in it's tracks
is an art
in itself

Finding the perfect
spot to jump
back in
with a splash

get it
hit it
live it
breath it

own it
wear it
out
share it

dare to dream
dream to dare
everyone's out
to get their share

of peace
of love
of peaceful love
and just enough
to fill the voids

we can't avoid
these thoughts
of grandeur
but maybe, just maybe

we can mark a path
for those who wander
help them along
and get "there" together

get it
hit it
live it
breath it

own it
wear it
out
share it
