Pride

It’s not just in the winning
The trophies or the spoils
It’s more about the stories
The challenges and toils

It is about the journey
The courage and the drive
That makes our hearts beat faster
And reminds us we’re alive

How will you remember
Events as they unfold
It’s not about the winning
It’s the stories that are told

There in lies the greatness
The each does have in side
So set sights on the future
And show the world your pride

Interrupted Journey

It’s not as you imagined
This wasn’t in the dream
Pieces that are missing
Can make you want to scream

Time to let go the pain
And start your life anew
Time for you to live the dream
I always had of you

Everything is as it should be
Never have a doubt
Sometimes it’s through pain and loss
That we learn what loves about

It’s time to rejoin your journey
I know you know the way
I look forward to your adventures
Because I’m with you every day

Insecurity

What is it you value
What is it you need
What is your direction
And advice that you may heed

Is it all external
Perceptions one and all
A crumbling set of values
Soon destined for to fall

Strength is not external
Its power lives inside
Guiding us through challenge
And rewarding us with pride

Don’t look out for answers
That isn’t where they lie
You are your own true compass
Because to do there is no try

The Foundation

So now you’ve heard the voices
And heeded well the call
Now to spread the message
To be heard by one and all

It’s not as it was written
In books so long ago
It’s more a path and framework
To live and feel and grow

To some it is a secret
To others purest truth
Discovering the lessons
We knew back in our youth

You now have the foundation
Though different than you thought
A chance for self-discovery
And lessons to be taught

Moving On

I think this time I’ve done enough
It’s time to say goodbye
Bags are packed, direction set
And so it’s time to fly

Wasn’t it quite the journey?
A frightful tale to tell
Days sprinkled with heaven
And nights the purest hell

So much in our making
Is gone now that we’re grown
It’s here my path is turning
But you’ll be fine now on your own

Please don’t over think this
It’s just that I am gone
Don’t think that I am giving up
It’s just I’m moving on
