Sometimes waking up and going out into the world is as much a challenge as trying to fall asleep.

 

When loneliness grabs your throat like a lion taking you own for the kill…..

 

When self doubt cripples your inner light like a solar eclipse……

 

When the “What if’s” cloud your mind like a gas chamber…..

 

When you reach out and realize it will not save you….

 

When you cry out and all you hear is a cold breeze….

 

This life is a challenge in so much as I started this life with one direction and found my calling.

 

When sacrifice of self seems a reasonable choice, and not in the least heroic…..

 

When seeking the end of the rainbow is still possible….

 

When man is a vessel of forgiveness and hope….

 

When the sound of a loved ones voice is enough….

 

Confidence is a fickle lover with no loyalty or integrity.

 

When craving that touch from the woman you love is just not there…….

 

When your fear of loosing all that you have is as strong as the heart beating in your chest…..

 

When you realize you cannot make another “do”….”be”….”want”…

 

My final hours will be the moment I understand everything. My final hours will be my masterpiece.  Until then…… many miles stand between self and confidence… my final radio call to be “Continue Mission”.
