To a discouraged heart...
When we were young, we did not know
how much things could change
We heard the phrase "on a dime"
and "people grow in different ways"
different directions, at varying speeds over time
We learned tough challenges,
get in our way, continually
Yet when one knows his or her own true self,
strength and courage will come
and we face them with power
from deep within, repeatedly
Anything is possible, they say,
a phrase I never quite believed,
I guess it is meant to be taken
metaphorically - one door
closes, another opens,
"there is a season for everything"
So many cliches
Answers are not always
what we want, expect, or dream
but if there were no rocks or branches
obstructing a pretty stream,
there would be no babble and splash -
and no one would hear its sweet melody
