We pause to look back on some days
To reminisce on our path - our journey
Holding surprise at the challenges we’ve braved
and marvel at what we’re becoming
I wonder how I got through many
I fought, even on days cold and rainy
What motivated me to stay on course
What strengths of mine came to the fore?
But the past is no place to dwell
And contemplating the future is far from easy
How far ahead can one see really
How many blazing trails can be revealed?
Life happens. Sometimes it is unpleasant
Even when good, we need grace to manoeuvre
Yet I do not worry about the future
Because I’m firmly rooted in the present.
