The Porch's Edge

Walking by my porch’s side
  I remembered when I was a child
   I remembered trying to balance myself
    While walking along the porch’s edge; without any help

It took a lot of perseverance, for I fell down a lot
  But, I never gave up; trying to reach the end of the plot
   Day after day I continued to try
     Until one day, I had my smile touch the sky

                    …I did it…
And for a child, that was an amazing prize

Here I am, standing on the porch’s edge
  Balancing my life on what’s right 
   Holding on to perseverance’s pledge
    As I strive towards the roads of life
