I Will Travel


I will travel.
From point A through to Z.
To journey on a path,
With no guarantee...
If the doing of it succeeds.
Or if my attempts should be defeated.
But faith I keep strong with me.
Knowing I will travel.
Knowing there will be obstacles.
And prepared for opposition.
To face and not replace with fear.
Doubts I chase away.
I've never been comforted by limits.
I will travel.
Since my mind will not permit,
A sitting to wish dreams to visit.
I am one who would rather travel.
I choose to greet and meet my destiny.
