JOY

 

By Beverly Nadler

 

I am eager for the future,

Grateful for the past

I finally know who I am

And where I am headedÖat last!

 

Itís been a strange journey

But Iím not looking back

Iíve shed my old beliefs

Of worry, fear and lack.

 

Life is filled with miracles

And challenges to overcome

Keep your eye on where youíre going,

Not where youíve come from.

 

Sure, life has its ups and downs

Nevertheless, we must

Know it all works out in the end

If only weíre willing to trust.

 

I feel this wondrous feeling

My Spiritís been set free.

I finally found the joy I seek --

It was always inside of me!
