    I cannot lose my strength
    I cannot squirm nor flinch
    I must make it happen if I want it to be.

    I am the one who will set priority
    I am the one with the authority
    It is my future, and my destiny.

    The people I bring into my life,
    I can listen to all of their advice,
    It may be an aid to things I hope to achieve.

    But, all and all, I’ll make the call,
    Thus, whether I climb, or I fall…
    I must establish what is best for me.

    I will be the one who makes it happen
    It’s my voyage, and I’m Captain,
    I must learn my way through the open sea.

    So, I must ascertain what routes are best,
    and learn to withstand every test
    And, I must recognize any particulars I may need.

    All slips will be my falls,
    I’ll live with the scrapes and the scars.
    When cut, I‘ll be the one who bleeds.

    I’ll live my life day to day,
    despite who’s there along the way.
    And I must discover what is best for me

    I must find it within me to buckle down,
    I must retain no fear to hold my ground.
    For, I am the one who holds the key.

    Final decisions are all mine to make
    with my hills to climb, my walls to break.
    It is I who must know… I who must believe.

    I must grasp, and understand,
    It is really all in my hands…
    If I want to grow, if I want to succeed.

    For the destination will be mine,
    With much effort strength, and time,
    As I find what is best for me.

    Yes, we are the captains of our own ships when it comes down to it, I like the way you posed this.
