~Wings To Soar~

As we journey along
life's ever winding highway,
 we see some of the obstacles ahead,
 that we're going to meet
 along our way.

We plan for these in our travels,
doing our best to be prepared.
We think we know what we need to do,
  so we will not become despaired.

Yet, other obstacles lie further ahead,
 and we don't always see them coming our way.
How we handle these obstacles of surprise,
makes us who we are today.

Some days we will face tough choices;
some that may affect others' lives.
Still, we have to do what is right for us,
and others will be doing likewise.

Believing in the choices that we make,
will give us wings to soar.
We'll fly free to become who we are.
In life who could ask for more?

Believing in yourself,
and all you want your life to be;
what a wonderful rush of self-esteem.
You really DO have the power to soar free!
