the hard and misty road
directionless but not lost
so tiring and cold
She kept walking brave and bold
catching every ball of opportunity
ignoring the traps life had set, only keeping her eye on her goals
her dreams, every step took, oh so close
She fell but picked herself right up
her friends, family encouraging and lending tools
her eyes filled with determination, just enough
standing stern, hot and cool
She cheered, throwing her cap
its over, after the long journey
she graduated, at last.
The bruises life had left, made her stronger, braver and happier.
