When boundaries need to be crossed
When ceilings are to be broken
When a new path needs to be chartered.
When life throws new challenges
At a time when all one wants to do
Is to hang up the boots and retire.
That is when we pull up our reserves
From the depths that are not known
Not aware of even to self.
Anticipating the obstacles
Knowing that sometimes there is no ground
To land our feet on.
Embracing the uncertainty
Going with the flow sometimes
Preparing for the challenges at others.
Feeling down and pulling oneself up
Finding the North Star for the journey
To always guide and shine.
