I'm Just Getting Started

There is a song Within the human voice A song that speaks of endeavoring beyond The limits we all have in place To test the meaning of our mettle To strive and push for the elements That define our spirit Lest we forget who we are A song of discovery in the face of being lost A song of triumph in the face of failure A song of strength in the face of hardship Of determination in the face of fear A song of faith in the heart of treachery A song of ourselves as we sing aloud "I'm just getting started" For my road is empty without my attempt My worth is naught unless it is challenged By the choices that are mine September 23, 2019
