Life is a journey;
And we're all just passing through-
all sent here with a job to do.
But like a roller coaster,
Filled with its unsuspecting twist and turns-
Lessons we all must learn.
Yet, we anticipate the thrill,
As we focus on making it to the top...
Then suddenly, we're at a complete stop.
In our bellies, our hearts nearly drop!
But all jokes aside,
Life can sometimes take us on a very bumpy ride...
For this is where the amusement's parked,
So hold on tight or you'll lose your grip-
At times life can be such a turbulent trip.
It's not for the swift;
This I can assure.
Only the strong will survive-
I came to a cross road,
A juncture in my life;
A serious state of affairs-
Needing someone to hold my hand,
And wipe my tears.
Giving up wasn't an option!
Is my only ambition,
Is my driving force, my life long mission.
Though, the path I walk is not an easy road,
For the sake of the children,
I must stand strong, brave and bold.
My voice must be heard,
The story must be told,
The message of love and acceptance-
must reach every postal code.
As I stand on the outside looking in,
I realized that one life matters;
So a new chapter must begin.
With the love from my family, supporters and friends,
I know my story can only have an happy end.
