When you have no goal to work towards,

Close your eyes and follow your heart.

Your journey will reveal a goal.


When every path is shrouded in shadows,

Form your own path and fill it with light.

No path worth taking is perfectly laid out.


When you’ve made a choice, and you’re filled with doubt,

Trust in your strength to move forward no matter what.

Even a bad decision can yield positive results.


When the world turns its back on you,

Stand tall and persevere.

You will always find someone to believe in you.

When all you want is to turn back,

Keep your eyes forward and look along the lighted path you created.

Change can only happen if you keep moving forward.


When voices scream for you to let go,

Scream back, “No,”

“This is my path and my journey is not over.”


You can tackle life head-on if you try,

Or you can take your time.

You don’t need to know where you’re going.

As long as you keep going, you are never lost.
