Spanners can so swift and suddenly spring;
the coils of life leap like a jack in the box.
We cannot say what the next day will bring
so we cannot be prepared for life's shocks.
The fog on the path obscures the cliff top
but we have no choice but to walk blindly,
hoping our feet don't reach the sudden drop
and, if they do, the fall treats us kindly.
We should not become bitter about the road
for it too leads us to places of joy.
This route can take us to places so broad
so we should walk; and both rise and fall enjoy.
The twists of this network can lead us dazed
so open your mind and become amazed.
