Road Trip

...Just because the road got a little bumpy, 
That didn't mean I was going to pull over, 
                 get out, 
and sit on the side of the road and give up. 
                                            I kept going. 
And at the end of the road, there was a dead end sign... 
                 but did that stop me? 
                           No. 
I parked the car, 
     got out, 
and continued on foot. 
Eventually I came to the brink of a huge mountain 
and looked up 
and thought it was impossible to climb. 
           But did that stop me? 
                       No. 
I tried anyway and started climbing. 
Once I got to the top, 
I turned around and looked over the mountain 
and I could see the smooth road 
     that turned into bumpy gravel 
          that came to a dead end 
               that came to the bottom of this mountain... 
everything that has tried to stop me. 
And suddenly, I realized 
that I now stood higher... 
       above it all... 
and now look how little it looks...

    Crystal, love the poem and how it inspires nothing but good thoughts. I can't seem to get passed this bumpy road I'm on at the moment.. however I won't give up, looking for the hill I can place myself on, to look back...nice and awesome..Linda
