The Journey

by Barbara Miles Jackson

Through out life's journey,
Success or failures
Will follow - be at every turn,
Holding your dreams at bay.

Blindly struggling,
Hope not charted,
Dreams not yet realized,
Another's dream comes true.

The path we've chosen,
Continues with each day,
Keep planning - stay focused,
'Til you recognize your destiny.

The poetry of other poets inspired me to go forward, changing myself when I could not change my situation.
