Dare To Be True

The way ahead may not be clear
The way ahead should hold no fear
Have an inner peace
Conviction strong
To sail your path
To sing your song

Live it to the full
Be kind and brave
And don’t hold back
When you strike a wave
Just charge on thru
‘cause on the other side
Is what you’ve wanted
The life you crave

And should you find
That you were wrong
All is not lost
Just change your song
A new direction
More inner strength
And start again
Jump another fence
Adjust, adapt but don’t despair
It will work out if you only dare

Always be true to yourself. Life doesn't always go the way we plan, but as you say, jump another fence, or take leap of faith, and open another door. Great insight, and a great poem. Linda
I love a poem that gives me strength.............this does. Very well done Don. Sincerely, Mary
Another nice one, Don. I usually don't like 'preachy' poems, but this is so gentle and peaceful that I make an exception. You have the heart of a poet. Raynette
