As I was travelling to St. Ives, I met a man who'd lived seven lives,
In each life he'd learned seven lessons,
Within each lesson he'd had seven chances,
With each chance he'd made seven mistakes,
With each mistake he'd found seven connections,
How many connections, mistakes, chances, and lessons are missed by those who fear to live?
