Lead - Poem by Dawn Jardine

Be strong
Be smart
Be ready
They told me

Work hard
Work more
Work lean
They told me

Go learn
Go work
Go home
They told me

Find peace
Find love
Find joy
I told me

Found love
Gained joy
Received peace

Built a house
Made a home

Had children
Made a family

Gave my all
Gained eternity

Poet's Notes about The Poem

In each stanza, I face a different period in my life. The messages that we are all given. Elementary school, high school, post-graduation, independence, satisfaction, and then what was gained by following my heart, instead of another's.
