Be Not Afraid - Poem by Lawerence Mize, Sr.

Be not afraid
As you climb the hill
Look back behind you
Take in your fill

You've traveled so far
Down life's many roads
Take time for a break
Lighten your load

Reflect on your journey
Take it all in
It's been a hell of a trip
No matter where you've been

Taken so long
To get from there to here
Now you know
There's nothing to fear

Be not afraid
As the curtain is drawn
You've reached the crest
It won't take long
