Outside the Lines

Every now and then it’s okay

to stray outside the lines,

not everyone needs to live

their life by design.

Some like to wake in the morning

not knowing how their day will end

instead of the regimented structure

of a life of pretend.

They challenge themselves

to live their life on the fly

instead of counting down the hours

to the day they will die.

They realise we have only

one opportunity on this small planet

and they are making sure

they get their fill of life’s banquet.
