Though the journey
has been long and hard,
been through peaks and troughs, the mountain top and valley, hiked in crooked and straight paths and walked with the mean and saintly, I can truly say “I’m happy to be me”.
There is a message deep within
to the struggling in whose minds gloom persists and wonder why they exist and with all their might happiness, they resist.
Accept the pains and strains as you do the gains and blessed rains ‘cause every grey cloud is but for a moment to learn in the present that the bitter as the sweet is just as relevant.
Relevant to turning the page to life’s next chapter.
Important to opening the door into a new pasture and significant to learning lessons, so you can truly say “I’m happy to be me”.
