Fortune.

1. A journey must begin Yes, let it begin
with a single step the sacramental breaking of cookie

2. Don't be afraid to trust the tiny article of faith inside
take that big step find riches, fame, romance

3. If you can't decide let fortune guide you
up or down to the edge of reason
try moving across that beguiling divide

4. Many a false step full of portent
is made by standing still jump
