Bumps in the Road of Life

By Monique Jetton

As I lay awake a night thinking of the past.
Wishing hoping that things could, would, should of or only if....
I did something different to change the course of life
Tossing and turning thinking how did I get here
Why am I in the place that I am?
Where do I go from here?
When will it end?
Will I ever feel whole again?
So many questions so little answers
Patience right now is not my strong suit.
I see my dreams and hopes pass before my eyes
I just want to reach out and hold on to them
I know this down time will pass
I see the high point coming
But between the two is a long quite time that is lonely.
If I can just hold out, and believe it will all work out?
No one ever said it was going to be easy
I know I am going to make it.
Just be patient, I tell myself.
