The Road to Success

 © 2010 Shereen Smith


Throughout my life I’ve loved, I’ve lied, I’ve hurt, I’ve lost, I’ve missed, I’ve trusted, I’ve made mistakes, but most of all I’ve learned…

The road to success is not straight.  There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies and caution lights called Family.

You will have flats called Jobs; but, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith and a driver called God, you will make it to a place called Success.

Jah Bless.
