Just up ahead | Leonnie Fisher – Poem
Just up ahead
I can see it, that elusive horizon I’ve been striving for.
It’s just up ahead, just within reach.
I can see how the sun sparkles over there, in that mysterious land.
How it beckons, how it calls to me, a summons I cannot ignore.
I march ahead, dragging my weary feet but make it I shall.
For that land just up ahead, just upon the horizon is the land of dreams.
I knew it wouldn’t be easy, I knew it wouldn’t be handed to me.
Of course not. For what lies up ahead is my destiny, a dream yet to be fulfilled.
And you can bet I’m going to give it all that I am to make it.
I will make it, because for me there is no other choice.
