My life is like a journey. The trail is long but worth it. I start my journey with a light load. Then as I walk further and further into the woods the load begins to get heavier. You come into the world, not knowing anything but as you get older and older, you go to school. My mind gets filled with information.
When I search along for answers I come upon dead ends. I must stop and trun around and go the opposite way. I don't always know the answers to everything and I have to realize that. Occasionally I must stop and think on where to go and other times I have to go and just trust my instinct.
There may be canyons and/or waterfalls along the way but they are merely obstacles I must get around. In my life there are many obstacles like when I get in a fight with my parents say no. I must find a way to get around it and do it anyway.
From time to time I may not find a need for the journey execpt I know I must go on and on into the forest of life. As I walk along through the deep dark forest I may not know where I am going or how I will get there. In my life I need to know even though I don't know what to do I will find something to do. For an example when I graduate from High School I don't know what I want to be when I grow up. I know that if I think about it I will soon know what I want to do with my life.
I know that there will be a different adventure around each and every corner. Just like my life.
