'What Lies Ahead of Me'
WHAT LIES AHEAD OF ME
the journey that God has planned,
to do our best to find out what it is
what is expected of us while we're here.
If we are to achieve what we put our minds to
we have to take it slow,Because we only get one chance ,
at getting on the right path , getting it right.
We hold ourselves to ransom to create a path so great,
that you would think that it was paved with gold.
When the realities of life hit us hard, that gold,can instead be turned to dust.
Holding on is hard at best, but made worse
when mountains arrive that we have to climb.
You can't ignore them you have to stay and face each one
You can't even run away and hide, they'll still haunt you.
The things that were on my list for fame ,
have slowly disappeared or failed.
Now time is running out for me,
of which I wasted a lot ,away from the ones I loveI had no say of what came about, the rules were made,They came from heaven, sent from God above.Challenges and obstacles thrown at me like
I am a big punching bag, certainly stumbling and falling
is part of life that no one likes to get, I got it in droves,
I asked myself at times "should I opt out now?
Struggling back on my feet I began to see the light,
but always the "black dog", certainly not my friend,
Was hovering always in the back, or very subtly it would be by my side.
For my eyes only, that dog is there with me
following on my journey, can't shake if off
The world isn't big enough to house the both of us,
either he goes away, never to return again,
Or I'll have no choice but to say goodbye to all I love
here on earth, I'd rather stay exactly where I am.
Afterall, he is here uninvited, well certainly not by me.
He slipped in unnoticed,I'll have to work even harder now
to kick him out of the game, otherwise he will get the fame.
I'm the one who should secure that spot, the one who
was to be the envy of all, the one who was to beat the rest.
I won't allow anything to spoil it now, not even a big black dog,
he isn't what he seems, he is in fact far from being my friend.
I leave this earth knowing that at some point here in my life
I finally had achieved my dreams, I leave with my head up high!
