I know what it means to have impatient dreams
To scatter them like seeds in a field called Hope
That yield little harvest.
I’ve climbed the ladder of Success
And gripped determination as I made my way up
Never letting go
Until I discovered that Success is not always measured
By how high you climb.
I’ve had the hot iron of Disappointment
Brand my expectations and make them his own.
I’ve come to Crossroads
Where there was no sign to point the way.
I’ve stopped by a place called Help
Entered and found it empty.
I’ve climbed the mountain
That led to Earthly Things
Then settled in the Valley of Things That Mattered Most.
I’ve lived for a while with Motherhood
Then moved on
To spend time in my empty nest with Solitude
I’ve stopped many times where Grief resides
But spent most of my time where Belief abides.
I’ve paid a visit to Friendship’s house
And found that entrance was by invitation only.
I’ve taken rough roads and stopped to drink
At the Fountain of Knowledge and Wisdom’s Well
That satisfied my thirst in dry places.
Now the road curves Homeward
And I have no desire to return to places and things I left behind
For where I’m going is far better than where I’ve been.
