What Challenges Lie Ahead

Updated on July 3, 2013

What Am I Made Of

As I take the rough road ahead bumpy as it may be

Where will it lead me ?

I wonder how dangerous it might be

Like a pirate on the rough seas

Each tangled mess I get in

Twisted and turned into a human knott

I strike with my mightiest blow

As if to slay the fiercest dragon of the land

Only to be knocked across and easily tossed

Like one of my cats favorite toys

I will recover

I will stand tall

I will not faulter or fall

I am pretty shaken up

Then again I am not a coward

So bring on your best

I will fight with a vengence that you have never seen

To hold my ground and push ahead slowly

I learn my lessons and resist each attack

Wondering what will become of all this

Will I one day look back and say

If it wasn't for all my struggles and constant battles

I could not rest in peace and see the beauty that lie hidden underneath

For each turmoil holds a simple sweet solution

That can only be found

When we activate all our senses and put them to the test

Accomplishing feats that have never been done

Until this day where I pull it all together and make

My life a jungle gym to climb

Then when we reach the top

A clear victory we can all share

One that always gave it a little bit more when others failed

Stick around to watch

Lifes happiness be unvailed

      shanmarie We are all facing different struggles at different times in our lives. Wouldn't it be great to help others when they need help and people come to our aide when we are down and out. All we have to do is be open and communicate. Thank you for your wonderful comments.

      Life is most certainly a challenge, but there most definitely is beauty in even the challenges. Sometimes it just takes awhile to see it. Some day the dust clears and the battle scars heal, though.

      A good description of life. One challenge after another, one struggle after another. Then what? Does anyone really know what it's all about?

      Hope you have a Happy Christmas and a healthy and prosperous 2014!

      Interesting about what lies ahead, there is often something that you don't know of but can only take a chance on what you have in mind.
