Ahead


Ahead

Looking only forward
To today
To every day
Without the ache
Without the affliction
With nothing in my way

I wake up now,
pain-free
No more agony
accompanying me
No more hesitation,
as I stand
I feel the fortitude
take my hand

I look past the pain,
that I used to dread
With my chin up

 With my eyes straight ahead
 

Looking only forward
at work
at play
With no distress
With no distraction 
With nothing in my way

I face my tasks
head on
Finish the game,
soreness gone
More prepared,
increasingly strong
I feel a resilience
that pulls me along

I am fully prepared
for the long-term
With my hands steady

 With my feet firm


Looking only forward

in all I do
in all I say
With no adversity
With no apprehension
With nothing in my way

I make my plans 
worry free
None of the severity
hindering me
Completely focused
on come what may
I feel my optimism
leading the way

I am ahead of myself
when I arrive
With my mind clear

With my ambition alive
