It has taken time

In certain moments it felt like an eternity

I was not always standing tall



There were occasions when I had fallen to my knees

Tears soaking my cheeks

Feeling like I could not take one more step forward

But I did

I stepped forward

Slowly finding my footing

Learning with each progression ahead

Finding my own way

This does not mean that it is all sunshine and laughter

The constant ebb and flow of life is still there

It keeps me whole

Breathes energy into me

And teaches me to observe

But I do feel an inner peace

A sense of wholeness within

It begins with a smile deep in my soul

Letting me know that I am on the right path

Digging deep

Falling down

Getting back up

Traveling along life's path with my eyes wide open
