I have traveled many years long.
I call it the journey of life.
To go out amidst the throng,
and meet what e’er the strife.
In these years I’ve completed
a plane, which I view with delight.
Then I found myself seated,
taking on life’s great flight.
When I heard the motor starting,
I settled in my seat to rest.
Then, with a feeling of imparting,
I remembered the things I love best.
Now my plane will be safe, I feel sure,
for I built it with care untold;
I know it is made to endure,
he weather, both stormy and cold.
And though the skies are unknown,
through which I still must test.
I hope to travel my way alone,
and reach life’s airport ”Success.”

I turned a page today,
in my book of life, so dear.
Memories of my happy day,
to my heart there was some fear.
But I ponder at the parting,
from my friends and family, I adore.
For I know there are no friendships,
like these which I have stored.
Now I hesitate a moment,
wondering which way to turn.
Shall I be content to linger,
or be willing to work and learn?
I know the way will not be easy,
by which many go.
But the guidance of my mother,
has fitted me to fight the foe.
I turn another page;
my goal is to reach greater heights.
To be striving and toiling over.
To do that which is right.
I may never be famous,
after life’s battle is won.
But let me be content,
if my work is judged, well done.
