In my mind’s eye
I picture an uphill climb
Some downhill slides

A journey over a long winding bumpy road
With a mountain or two to climb

A Journey with barriers to break through
Old bridges to burn
And new bridges to build

A long journey
A journey with grace as my guide my teacher
My journey creating a new road 
A road on which I must leave my mark 
By carefully laying the tracks of my footsteps
Should my children choose to follow
