I've been around a lotta years!
I've traveled the road of life!
I've had many, many, ups and downs,
times of joy, and grief, and strife!
I've tried my best, to keep looking ahead,
but on occassion, I'd pause to reflect!
I call upon, hard lessons learned,
to attain the results, that I expect!
I tried to shape my future,
from transgressions, I've endured.
I kept my "best foot forward",
in hopes my success, would be assured!
Mistakes are part of living,
they're part of who we are.
Yes, life can be bewildering
and sometimes quite bizarre!
It's how we react when troubled!
How we handle times of stress,
that determines what will happen
and if we will, attain success!
The Power of Positive Thinking
is the key to getting thru!
Wheather or not, you attain your goal,
is strictly up to you!
Intestional Fortitude, is what it takes,
to help create your aspirations!
It will give the courage and strength you need,
to reach your long-range expectations!
So, be assertive and determined!
Don't let doubt, get in your way!
Life is what you make it,
what more is there to say!
