How odd to finally be going away, her mind in distress,
Even the shadows of her future were scary at best!
She sunk into the cushion of the back seat, stresses had taken their toll,
in and out of deep sleep, she’d awaken to still feel her empty soul!
Day turned into night, she didn’t seem to care,
Exhaustion filled her up as into her eyelids she continued to stare.
Arriving at their destination, somewhat a relief,
Goals were set for dreams renewed, was this actually a real belief?
Time did not wait for her to answer as it marched from days to months,
Right away a new job, meeting of new friends and never giving up!
Pressing forward she plucked the courage to give an old friend a call;
That was in the Autumn as dying leaves began to fall………………..
The months have now turned into years of joy and happiness,
No more dingy days of unwanted criticism, no more ugliness!
My heart rejoices, brimming over with glee,
Because he accepts me for me!!!!!!!!!……….
The odds weren’t all that stacked, although it seemed so upon leavin,
Thanks to the Good Lord above, the odd bumps in the road have smoothed out
and now are even!
