The Path Before

Walking the path

Hundreds, no thousands had tread before

Winding through the hurdles of life

College, finals, work

How does it all get done


I worked towards perfection

Never stopping

Never wavering

Till everything was in its place

Done exactly right


Then change

Perfection seemed impossible

Failing, falling towards the abyss

But then I saw it

A speck of light, hope


Motivated I crawled

Back upwards

Reaching for the sky

Towards that impossibility


Now I know the truth

That with hard work and persistence

Anything is possible

Never give up hope

For hope is always with us
