Flying by the seat of my pants by Sofia Kioroglou

Flying by the seat of my pants

Life is like riding a bicycle
You don’t fall unless you stop pedalling
But what about freewheeling?
It is like allowing your life
to be controlled by destiny

The truth is that I have never learned
to ride a bike but only to freewheel
I love flying by the seat of my pants
I just love the unpredictable
I just want to see life like a walk in the park

One thought on “Flying by the seat of my pants by Sofia Kioroglou

  1. Thanks for sharing this one … being frank and forthright I feel that the final feature (the walk in the park) seems far away from the rest of the theme … I must be missing something … I didn’t learn to ride a bike either … DaP
