"Never let the odds keep you from doing what you know in your heart you were meant to do."


The beautiful valley stretched calmly forth
and i traveled through it without a care
I was all alone as i headed north
with no destination and no despair

But my travels led me to a mountain
and, knowing nothing, i started to climb
I did not see that great valley again
for what seemed like an eternities time

I went up and up, away from the ground
Learning every time i stumbled or tripped
Many horrid things tried to tear me down
But i reached the top though my clothes were ripped

Never give up, do the best you can do
Conquer that mountain and learn from it too

I've learned that we are taught the most from our trials. We face many all of our lives. Might as well face them with with a good attitude.
