forward and on.

I wondered how far I had to go
before the tides turned
and luck was on my side.
I wondered about all the countless times I had thrown pennies in fountains
wishing for miracles and dreams to come true.
And I thought about greener pastures
and what lay ahead
and how the past hurts us in so many ways
by keeping us down and fearing our own fate.
We don’t have nine lives
and the time
to waste on waiting for something magical to happen.
We have our hands to create,
our feet to move forward.

No one said it would be easy
but no one said it’d be impossible either.
