There was a road less traveled,
A winding, unkempt, delapidated trail
With lots of promise and road blocks.
It wouldn’t be easy to travel it but it was worth the journey.
I dared to dream, to hope and breathe
Taking the road less traveled would challenge and excite me.
However tough the going got,
I kept going, wishing, enjoying the sacrifices and opportunities to grow.
It wasn’t easy to wander and wonder,
To not have a place to call my own,
But sleeping under the starts guided me to places unknown to me before.
I learned to navigate,
It will get better as the road becomes a part of me,
As I evolve from this frail shy soul into a woman that can brave it all.
To become bolder and wiser will take careful steps and planning.
Let the winds of change sound the call.
I’m forging a path all my own.
