DONT FORGET THE BALL IS IN YOUR COURT

A lot of expectations as you grow older
Some of them you see coming
While most are jaw-dropping
And without permission walk into you

It is ironic the way people now see you
Can you do it? Is now a thing of the past
The words “no” is now very pesky
So you can’t help but say yes

When you are pushed against the wall
You have nothing but the wall at your face
So tall and sturdy, you just keep looking up
But surprisingly you always get to the top

    Well written Williams! I love the message - even if you're pushed, you get to the top: that's the kind of attitude we all need to develop. Nice!
