I Believe in Me (a Poem)

Often I feel

nothing goes right

when I decide a path

make a plan

begin a journey.

There are starts and stops


wrong turns

over and over

but again I try.

Determined to make it

I continue this road

lessons learned

become challenges ahead.

Driven by a desire

to see a better way

I’ll modify and strategize

until I see the light.

Losing believers along my route,

I continue undeterred.

Focused on the end

I’ll make my way somehow.

Failures provide opportunities

new avenues and ideas.

I see so closely

where I want to be

dreams and hopes

faithfully guide me

through the darkness.

Failures do provide opportunities. You nailed it. Thoughtfully well done and it speaks to what many of us have felt and one time or another.

Sending Angels to you this evening....Keep believing in you :) ps
