Obstacles

by rosey   Dec 28, 2017


Push through it
Push through it even though your patience wears thin,
and your resolve wants to crumble.

Push through it
Push through it, even though you feel the clock is ticking by slower and slower with each passing day.

Push through it
Push through it because, all of the hard work you’ve done, are doing, and will do, is not for nothing.

Push through it
Push through it because, doors open
and doors close for reasons that are out of your hands.

Push through it
Push through it, even though you don’t know where you stand,
in a world where you move forward one grain of sand at a time.

Push through it
Push through it because, although the world seems like it’s at a stand still,
time is still moving, and you are still moving even though you feel cemented to the ground.

Push through it
Push through it because, it only takes that one moment for your life to shift,
the last grain of sand to settle,
and the foundation to lift you from the earth to support the souls of your feet for the journey ahead.

Push through it
Push through it, because even when your dreams look dark and bleak,
It doesn’t mean that they’re dead.

    One could argue that dreams are futile, that trying takes too much effort, but it's in the stumbling that we learn who we really are. None of us truly know what we're doing or where we stand. It's in the discovery, that's what makes us real and vulnerable and imperfectly human. Even if we don't know why the heck we're still trudging through the dirt, the point is we'll make some destination, we'll write our own journey if nothing else happens.

    Motivational piece :)

      I see your point, and I agree with a part of what you are saying. People can make their own destiny, and they can find them selves through a journey of their own making. But being shaped by our struggles in life and the lessons we learn doesn’t mean we can’t still follow our dreams. Dreams are just goals that haven’t been reached yet. Plus anything that doesn’t require effort probably isn’t worth it. Anyone can take the easy route.
