Mother Nature and a horse will teach it all
I rode upon my horse today
Into the setting sun,
I thought about the life I've led
And all the things I’ve done.

I pondered some regrets I have
As well as things I love,
I thought about my life to come
Then turned my gaze above.

And realized it mattered not
What had happened up till then,
Regardless of the plans I had
It’s really in Gods hands.

The only thing I can control
Is how I choose to see,
The events that cross my path each day
My reaction up to me.

So I reached down and stroked my pony
Stared in awe at the night sky,
Deciding to let my life move on
And just enjoy this great long ride.
