I Decided to Succeed

Reaching the age that I am now and looking back,

Looking at opportunities lost, looking at chances missed.

I decided to SUCCEED!

Looking at circumstances I allowed to stop me; at attitudes I allowed to block me.

I decided to SUCCEED!

Looking at the sacrifices my mother made, the hopes not fulfilled.

Looking at the struggles to keep me safe, the choices made.

Looking at talents and dreams wasted, and time left unknown.

Feeling empowered because time and purpose says NOW!
