Straight Ahead

Updated on January 26, 2017
Source

Our dreams came true


Because we crawled past our failures


That amazing, true love we found


Was made possible by experiencing countless heartaches



Our super-human strength was discovered


At times when we felt our weakest


Our courageous heart came from


Being scared stiff


Our ability to adapt to change


Came because we were not afraid to feel a little uncomfortable


Every good thing we have experienced


Once was something not so incredible


But we keep on living and moving straight ahead

      Thank you Faith and yes God molds us in the way he knows suits us, I am so glad he pulled me away from the old path I was walking down.

      Thank you guys for your comments, I have discovered so much from the simple natural act of growing older. That whole saying we grew up hearing about the older you get the more wise you become, actually turned out to be true.
