Stepping Stones - Poem by Patricia Grantham

As you start your journey and begin to cross the dale
Be like the wise old owl and master every trail
The path might be rough and the going may be tough
Keep on crossing the stones until you've had enough

The road can be very long and you may begin to think
Some stones are not so steady and others may begin to sink
So hang on in there and stay right on your course
A strong will for survival is your only source

Accept failure as your lesson and continue down the road
The further you decide to travel the lighter will be the load
Success will soon appear as you come to the end of the line
Then you will look to the future and say victory is all mine

    Sucess is for those who persevere inspite of the hardships! The road may be rugged and strewn with splinters and thorns. Still continue going.... never drop half way! A very optimistic close! ! (Report) Reply

    A great poem, the road we take can be long, but if we
    can get to where we was going then it will be worth it.
