Time flies by, so they say.
One moment your a child
nervously entering a new school,
then your an adolescent
negotiating the pitfalls of puberty
as you seek to discover
your way in the world,
then comes those early years of adultness,
figuring out what path to take,
to your dream destination.
Then you find out that life is not ride at DisneyWorld
the Fairy Godmother is not real
the Princess or Prince is really a frog,
a poisonous one at that,
but if you’re true to yourself,
persevere through the storms
in the shifting seas
you find that one person
who will hold on to you no matter what.
That one true love
that you reach out for in the dark
when you’re scared and tired
knowing they will be there.
Then comes the moment that you pause,
like an explorer, stopping to survey the landscape
looking back at where you’ve been,
then looking out onto the fog shrouded mountains,
you know you cannot go back
and so placing one foot in front of the other
you take a deep breath and step boldly out
trusting in the love and faith you have.
