Always Look Up

A madman once told me to always look up,
He said to be thankful for all that I’ve got,
and more will be due if I raise up my head,
For you miss opportunity when you look down instead.

Say yes to the invites, say yes to the chance,
Say yes to the drink, and yes to the dance,
Welcome the protest and welcome the chore,
Be thankful for the chance to step out the door.

Luck is a product, one which we all make,
The actions we do and the paths that we take,
For we’re in control, we are our own kings,
Responsible for all that our life brings.

Opportunity is not at the click of a mouse,
It will not come knocking on the door of your house,
For you have to seek it, like a golden snitch,
The chance to progress, and the chance to be rich.

The chance to befriend, the chance to adore,
You will not find staring down at the floor,
But throughout this searching remain positive,
For you give what you get, and you get what you give.

A wise man once told me to always look up,
He said to be thankful for all that I’ve got,
And more will be due if I raise up my head,
For you miss opportunity when you look down instead.

It is said, this 12th man gives you the advantage, but it is a strange term to use when the teams are not even utilising the 11 that they have on the pitch.
