Capture the moment

Capture the moment
Don't miss the chance.
No time to relive it
Since life is a glance.

Do practice order
The records so show.
If not there is chaos
No game plan no go.

Now don't be discouraged
That life is mundane.
It's up to the instinct
Which moment to claim.

The chances are many
Just be alert.
The trick is to choose
With Danger to flirt.

Yes, life is exciting
Remember recover.
Step forward with courage
The moment discover.
