What lies around the next curve in,
The road that I am traveling?
A bump that I can overcome,
Or is it my unraveling?
 
For all my life has been uphill,
A test of strength and wit...
Fueled by the traits that I possess,
While not allowed to quit.
 
Desire that has spurred me on,
To do tasks set before me...
Each small success encouragement,
So life would never bore me.
 
A drive that comes from deep inside,
Stands me up when I am down...
Taught me to recognize the value,
Of a smile and not a frown.
 
My own road grows much shorter,
But still I plod ahead...
A stubbornness God gave to me,
My time short as frayed thread.
 
I'll grab and hold a shooting star,
Laugh and enjoy the ride...
It's then that I will start to live,
For I will not have died.
