The Journey

A poem by Victor Lindsay, Forward graduate

Just for today, I wake up feeling fresh and bright,
I look and pray to my higher power to keep showing me
the light.

We always think we can do it alone, yet our heart is
not set in stone.

So the journey begins in good stead, my sleep tonight
makes me feel what a loving bed.

I find being honest to myself, keeps me grounded like
plates on a shelf.

Today my feeling of joy plays a big part of my life,
loving memories of peace looking forward to meeting him
in the East.

I am at a place of comfort I feel, because my heart
is settled leading to me believing in me from the start.
I have had many days stuck in the haze, don’t worry
he said the heart is like a maze.

My journey is fine, getting taught the best way
forward not battling my mind.

Sometimes my head drifts away in outer space, it’s
not a race, it’s how you pace.

I love me now, showing happiness keeps me focused,
keeps me true to myself, happiness is not a test.

The journey won’t stop here so don’t you disappear,
life’s good, the best it can be, I FEEL FREE.
