Wonder On

Do you ever wonder,

How you got somewhere?

Even though a while ago,

That’s exactly where you wanted to be.

Do you ever wonder,

How far you could go?

But what if the void is still empty,

So you’re too afraid to see.

 

Do you ever wonder,

How all these people got through?

They probably had it worse,

And you feel lucky to be you.

But do you ever wonder,

If, like you, they had never tried?

Then you would have no inspiration,

Because they’d have never caught your eye.
