Started life crawling before taking the first step;
Then took to walking when I had mustered the skill;
Accelerated to running when I knew I could do better;
And how fun it was to find myself on top of the world;
Now I find myself at the crossroads;
Not too sure which turn to take;
Each path promising something I’ve always desired;
But I cannot have both; one would have to be let go and I’m not sure which one.
So as I wait for directions, I choose to take a minute and look back;
And recount how far I have come;
Instead of wasting my time ripping myself of the joy of how far I’ve come;
I choose to be content and grateful for life’s little blessings.
From the moment I took my first step;
I knew I was destined for greatness;
The road may be bumpy and the journey longer than expected;
But I do know I will get to my destination right on time with God by my side.
This is for anyone who was struggled in life only to reach a crossroad;
Do not give up because you feel stuck;
Look back and remember how far you have come;
And know that your journey is certainly not over.
