What Moving Forward Is All About

I hope this journey I have taken,
With bumps and bruises...
And obstacles faced.
To confront them with a praying,
They would go away and be erased.
But my destiny has not been easy.
Nor choices available to make safe escapes.

I hope this journey I have taken,
With bumps and bruises...
And obstacles faced,
Says 'something' about determination....
To anyone with a belief,
They can not delete or change their fate.
Wanting it to happen is the difference this makes.

Wishes exchanged on priority lists,
To shift back and forth...
As if this benefits.
Only happens in dreams with drugs assisted.
Or binges stirred by alcohol,
With a doing to stall all intentions.

Wishes exchanged with complaints remaining,
Only protects one's procrastination.
And the making of forward steps,
Become more accepted by the presence of regrets.

I hope this journey I have taken,
With bumps and bruises...
And obstacles faced,
Says 'something' about determination....
To anyone with a belief,
They can not delete or change their fate.
Wanting it to happen is the difference this makes.
With a disregarding those pains, aches and heartbreaks.

'I don't know if I can do that.
I'm too emotional.
I'm not that cold.'

I've learned to shiver to a freeze,
To leave behind whispering naysayers...
Wishing me to feed on 'their' doubts.
And that's what moving forward is all about.
