Here it goes, make it work
It’s hard but so what?
Work hard and it’s fine
Try harder, be smarter, understand
Don’t give up, make it work
This is the path, the way out
It’s not working, it’s too much
It must compute, but it doesn’t
No way to make it go through
Not smart enough, not strong enough
The road ends, no way through the wall
The thick wall of thorns made of broken connections never to be made
The light in the distance obscured
A journey begun but hopes delayed
She didn’t have it in her
What to do now?
What about this way?
Is there a way through?
It’s blurry, is that a light?
Is the path unobscured?
A journey begun, please let the hopes remain
What if it happens again?
What if it’s wrong?
What if the abilities once had are gone?
What if there is no calling out there for some?
What if some will never be done
Done looking for a place to belong in this life
A girl finds her path; she has all that she wants
A family behind her and a person to love
Where were her troubles, did it all come so easy?
Did she hide the confusion, the anxiety?
Is it so easy to find happiness?
What’s the trick, can she tell?
Share with the class, we’re dying to know
What’s the secret for paths chosen correctly and decisions made well?
Weights crushing down
How can this be right when the fear is still around?
Is there no way no know until it’s here or it’s gone?
How to find a path, find happiness
Go to school, find a job, make a choice, grow up, pull it together, make money, be happy, be strong
Sure of decisions forced out of a young heart
No world experience
No idea of a life
A life of responsibility, demands, and expectations
Overwhelming choices to one used to rules rules rules
But once paths are chosen
Decisions are made
That’s that, right?
Now it’s done
But what if it’s wrong, what if paths were dead ends?
The decisions were bad
There’s nowhere left to go, backtrack, try again
The same anxiety, the same fear of not knowing
Only multiplied tenfold
It was wrong before so there’s really no way to know
But paths have to be chosen
Decisions must be made
All I can think is please find me
