Success II


You might never
Reach the sky,
But that’s no reason
Not to try.

Life’s a struggle,
A daily grind,
If you fight through it,
Success you’ll find!

The Lighthouse


You are out there,
lost without even knowing,
somewhere in the endlessness of the ocean.

I am here,
standing on solid ground,
shining a light, not just for you to find safe haven, but looking for you, desperately.

And so it goes, the story of every lighthouse.
Unable to move or turn off its light in the dark.
Waiting for the lost ship to come in.
