Bon Voyage - Poem by Larry Dwyer

It helps a heap before you leap
To pick a spot to land.
A solid rock is quite a shock
Compared to looser sand. A better break is no mistake
If well planned in advance.
Actions best should always rest
With something more than chance. A longer stride should first abide
Direction from the mind.
It isn't odd the path we trod
Determines what we find. A closer look detects the hook
Before you make the deal.
The acid test will put to rest
Your trust in false appeal. So now you know the way to go
For happiness outstanding.
Don't play cute, just check your 'chute
And have a happy landing!
