It’s easy to fall down the slope when the footing disappears.
So easy to kiss your cares good-bye and to demand that fate forget you.
How I’ve cursed the wind and snow.
Even as I write this I wonder what craziness will befall me.
For what is good certainly fails
and left behind is misery.
At least, that is what I’ve noticed.
These past few years
I wouldn’t want to redo.
Well, that’s not quite true.
There are parts I want to relive.
Like the day my foal was born.
To see her small and brand new-
well, that was a most glorious gift.
To taste victory
when everyone said give in.
To keep fighting
when most would have backed down.
My victory is near.
I can taste it in the air.
“It is always darkest before the dawn…
Shake it out Shake it out”
I could have walked away from this path.
I could have decided to take it easy.
However, that just isn’t me.
Soon, you will see.
