How do you know when it is time to change your dreams
What gives you the courage to just say enough is enough
So many factors converge on our thinking as we pass along
That we just have to make the decisions that are tough.

Whether it be our family around us or the friends that we have
There are always those around us that will support what we do
Not always do they know the reason we laugh or maybe lose our smile
They know the mistakes we make and they can help us make it through.

Never be afraid to ask for the assistance that you might need
To many times there have been those that tried by them self to cope
Not willing to share what they feel or to open their heart
So they pass through their trials and leave them self without hope.

For everyone there are the feelings, emotions, the way of the heart
Pride and stubbornness are among the things that each of us dread
We can admit to our self and to others that we have those qualities
But it isn’t until we fall or even fail that we withdraw instead.

    I think family is very important to help deal with changes in your life. I have a great family who support me in anything I want to do, even if in the end its not the best decision, and they are there when things go wrong. Love this poem!
