Life's full of game, vast in resource. Many fare a cast; others venture but dare none.
Life's full of game, vast in resource.
Many fare a cast; others venture but dare none.
What we seek is sizable, due determination.
Destination, be it muddy creek, translucent pond, crystal clear lake or vast sea of blue,
only imagination will apprize.
Days, be there a portion, are numbered at best, cast while they last.
Faith's castin' that line of expectation.
Complicated won't always hook 'em; simplicity will surely do.
It'd be boring if all we could hook were trout, oh, the beauty of variety.
Set realistic goals won't you; don't fish for whales in a pond full of minnows.
Strategy's key, not always productive however.
Success and failure go hand in hand, straddle a thin line indeed; it's all about perception.
It's important to view the experience as far greater than the feat.
The net of "NO" isn't always the end; it's usually safety beyond fathom.
Hold the prize in your palm, smile, then let go; much like He does with defining love.
Catch and release is a merciful term to learn.
Fill the boat with hope, you never know what the day may hold.
Prayer never hurt either; a great fisherman's persistent.
Life's a bit like fishin', you know, it's unpredictable and the fish aren't always bitin.'
