The Journey’s Just Begun…A Lot Needs To Be Done..



Stumbling blocks-

Falls, bruises, a few hard knocks,


No sense of direction

One goal in mind

The path to find

I must carry on…


Failed dreams, big losses,

Wounds… the heart nourishes,

Lie awake,

What does it take?

A magic mantra*-

or is there a powerful yantra**?

Or must I just carry on…



And trying some more; not giving-

in or up, just getting better at it

And hoping, praying with a candle lit,

That tomorrow’s ray

will bring the awaited day,

And if not, I must keep moving on…


And one day then,


I cannot say,

It’ll come-

the win, the glory; a sum,

Of the trials, the prayers,

the the pain, the naysayers, the hours…


But surely it’ll come,

Go on and on; it’ll come.
