The Poet’s Corner: “Journey”

By Guest Author: John Yurgens


Every Journey begins with a single step

our journey may be long

At times tedious

Other times fun.

Of course there may be

Bumps or Pot holes

Roadblocks or detours

Peaks and valleys

We have overcome these obstacles, perhaps not all, but many just the same

There are times we may stumble along the way,

With or without assistance we need to get back up

Brush off the dust and take another step

When discouragement and challenges attempt to overwhelm us.

We need only look back at the obstacles we have overcome to get to here and now

Celebrating all our victories, no matter how small.

We must remain focused on a purpose

With focus on that purpose

The continued steps of progress are indeed possible  

Most often our steps are forward

Yet other times we may take few steps back, to refocus ourselves

With hope, encouragement and

Support of others

We can continue progressing on our journey

One step at a time
