A Big Milestone

A big milestone
looms in my way 
not one to saunter to 
not one to bypass or ignore
not today. 

Strength and courage 
are mustered to surpass 
the obstacles seen today 
to that tremendous milestone 
on my path, on my way.

Looking Back

Looking back upon my life
Things seem to be
Not very nice.

Looking back not sure what
Got me here
Never saw but felt it near
A presence
Being absolute
Holding me with resolute.

Looking back I can’t see why
I struggled so and didn’t die
Think cause it would pick me up
Dust me off, pat me on the back
Saying words “Go ahead you’re not dead”
“Life has still a lot to offer.”

Looking back down my way
I see I didn’t walk alone
Nor did I saunter
But full stream ahead is what I did
For I had my heart, my soul
And the help a presence offered.
