If you could warn yourself about the future, what would you change?
If I knew then what I know now,
would I have accepted the challenge?
Would I still give it my all?
Or would I turn and give a bow?

If I knew then what I know now,
would I have been ready to sacrifice?
Would I still say no to all those invites?
Or would I turn and give a bow?

If I knew then what I know now,
would I have prepared for the pain?
Would I still take a deep breath and smile?
Or would I turn and give a bow?

If I knew then what I know now,
would I have been equipped for battle?
Would I still fight the ultimate fight?
Or would I turn and give a bow?

If I knew then what I know now,
nothing would have changed.
Through everything lessons are learnt,
knowledge and confidence are surely won.
Life can be tough.
Be sure before you take that final bow!
