There are times when we are pushed to understand
That changes in life are something we should make
It is never an easy task to grab onto sometimes
But once we figure it out, it’s a new path to take.
Life continues on no matter how we drag our feet
We either move ahead or we are left in the dust
So we pick up the pieces of whatever we let go
And follow the path upon which we have been thrust.
It is easy to look behind and wonder what might be
But that just keeps us weaving and unsteady at best
Better to just point our nose in the direction to go
And lift up our chin, raise our head, stick out our chest.
There are only so many chances we get to be happy
If we lose out and don’t make right choices, we cry
But it does no good to sit and wonder what went wrong
Time to look to the future and make another try.
