Life can certainly be
More meaningful and effective
If I take the time to look at things
From varying perspectives
By looking down it’s plain to see
The heights that I have scaled
Milestones reached, goals attained
Overshadow the times I failed.
From this view I am reminded
Of those who gave me a hand
With thoughtful words of encouragement
And an effort to understand.
There have definitely been some challenges
No climb is problem free
A suggested approach, taking one step at a time
Has worked quite well for me.
To pause a moment and look at the world
from this point of inspection
I will not doubt reap an amazing reward
Of a beautiful reflection
