A poem I wrote for the annual Journey House graduation ceremonies for former foster youth.

A Journey of Dreams


Most folks said it couldn't be done,

Yet here We are,

Celebrating a milestone,

And resetting the bar,

Transcending beyond ALL fears and doubts,

A true Rising Star,

They've been trying to dim your Light,

Yet here We are...


Uncertainty fills Life's Journey,

That's why We Dream,

Pushing past ALL the roadblocks,

That cloud over Hope's beam,

A scabrous path is guaranteed,

Can't ever let up steam,

For sheer Will and Resiliency,

Adds meaning to the Dream...


Countless doubts lay in your wake,

Even your own,

Ripples of painful Memories,

Tugging at your bones,

Keep striving and achieving,

Bring it ALL home,

'Til the faithless start believing,

Even your own...


The evolving door of Wonder,

Has led You here,

Through ALL the bends in the Road,

And despite ALL your fears,

Seizing every Moment, even when,

The forecast wasn't clear,

Committed to your Excellence,

And that's why you're here...


The Journey is far from over,

Excel with Resilience,

There are no rewards without risks,

Embark with confidence,

Ask the questions, and curb your hubris,

Achieve with Diligence,

Keep the momentum towards your Dreams,

Rely on your Resilience...

Cherish the grind that got You here,

It's a Dream come true,

Your commencement is your testament,

To Always push through,

A lifetime Gift, embedded to uplift,

ALL those around YOU,

A reminder in the darkest days,

That Dreams do come true...


Most folks said it couldn't be done,

Yet here We are,

Celebrating a milestone,

And resetting the bar,

Transcending beyond ALL fears and doubts,

A true Rising Star,

They've been trying to dim your Light,

Yet here We are...
