Self trust

There comes a time

In everyone’s life

To decide

What’s important

What’s worth fighting for

What to let go of

Sometimes it’s the smallest thing

That sets us on this course

Of deciding

Sometimes it’s a big thing

It’s different for each one of us

As we get older

It gets clearer

What we will stand for

What we will ignore

And once we decide

Our focus is laser sharp

Our aim is true

No confusion

Chaos fades around us

We stand firm on our conviction

Others can sense it

Some respect our resolve

Some laugh at our foolishness

Some fear our determination

We only wish

That trust in ourselves had come

Years ago
