When I was small I used to wonder why I was here on Earth
I never saw the meaning of life and the future seemed dark
Yet revelation after Revelation,
I know my Meaning and my Path.
I am meant to be walking here on Earth
On this road that is winding and narrow
Too many times have I gotten lost
And too many times I have been close to the edge
Still I have persevered and walked on,
and now I am starting to see far ahead.
I know my existence has a reason,
and I know my feet will carry me
The journey will get worse and it will get better
There will de downhills, and there will be times when I’m forced to hike uphill
I will walk alone
But I know I will help others by holding onto their hand
I will look back from time to time
and realize how far I have come
How hard has the road been?
How much have I struggled?
But when I turn my head and look ahead of me
I will see the light, and one thing will be clear
It was all worth it.
A poem from summer 2007
