The Journey I'm walking through rough waters. There are many arms trying to pull me away. They fight to drag me from my chosen path, But yet I persevere, and continue down the river. The waters grow more and more turbulent. The arms, much stronger than before. The temptation to turn away is growing. My will, struggling to proceed. In my mind I doubt my ability to go on. Fatigue is racing through my veins, But yet I continue on my way. Finally, my journey is complete. My falls... many. But the reward for perseverance is great. I look back, and see my journey was not in vain. I see that through the turbulence I grew stronger. The struggle not only tested me. It grew me into who I am. I look back with great respect. Respect for the journey. Regretting nothing.
