If God brought you to it,
He will get you through it.

A Bend In The Road

There once was a girl
She wanted to become a lawyer
And as she grew older
Each step she took got her closer
To her heart's sole desire.

As dreams do come true
So did hers,and she took her oath
She went on to fight in court
With fervent ardor
Wearing only the best of suits and stilettos.

Each time she walked into a courtroom
She stepped into a magical world of her own
For many years, the law's complexities
And intellectual challenges kept her
Spellbound and mesmerized to no end.

And then somewhere along the way
Something happened...
Suddenly the law that she faithfully
Served and loved
Seemed distant and impossible.

And so, she took on the road
That led her to another path
She took a turn that would lead her far, far away
From the world that she used to know
It all just seemed meaningless.

But not far into the new journey
She opened her eyes and saw
That she was in a strange world
Where nothing seemed right
No matter how hard she tried.

She felt so lost and alone
Her spark of life begun to flicker
Then it dawned on her
When she took that sudden turn
She left her heart behind.

You just have to keep your heart. Always. Heart is the key to anything you do or want to do. Very well put Bing.

Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

You capture very well the "something missing" feeling when our path diverges from where our hearts want to go. Good job. I love the qote you have here on the comment page - "Never are we nearer the Light than when the darkness is deepest." I know a First Nations medicine man who told me "Your deepest pain is your strongest medicine." Yes. Keep writing your way through!

Hi Bing,

Dreams must change as life goes on..often due to unforeseen circumstances..or sometimes just because WE do. Nice blog and poem.

hi mary, i guess what matters is that we don't stop dreaming. thanks for stopping by.

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.

"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino

If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
