When life throws up roadblocks
I don’t sit around
feeling sorry for myself
or letting the grass grow under my feet

Nah! nah! nah!

You’ll find me with my shovel
carving a path
across vast fields
venturing into new terrain
stopping to admire the view
partaking of a new menu

Yeah! yeah! yeah!

An avidity for life
that’s me to a ‘T’
you’ll find me with my shovel
carving the earth before me
