This journey that you are on is not a roller coaster ride,
One that quickly gets you to the top only to bring you right back down where you started.
It is not a treadmill that gets you no where fast, although it allows you to set you own pace.
Life is a journey with highs and lows,
Fast and slow paces, with a destination.
Where are you going?
Being free is what makes this journey worth all that it comes with,
Which means we have to carefully steward the freedom.
The wrong take with freedom has the potential to strain the journey,
To take our minds off of what is right
And bring some of us to a place where we cannot afford to follow the law.
Do you know where you are going?
Who you take along with you can change the course of your journey
For the good, the bad; the consequences will tell you.
In a world where up is down, down is right, up is wrong
You cannot afford to follow the crowd in the name of #hashtags or any other way.
Stand your ground; love has nothing to do with accepting the norms.
