The road ahead

                                                        By Mory Keita

I feel life in my skin and heart,
I feel its winds blowing north, south, west and east,
I feel its sorrow consuming my heart, darkening my soul.

I see life, atop mountains and down valleys,
I see its tears falling down valleys like a river,
I see its roads through the steps of ancients and stories,
I see its ladder spreading from earth to heavens.

Knowing the road ahead shivers my heart,
I know it will be hard and steep to climb,
I know my destination is far and uncertain,
But I shall not give up; I shall climb and climb,
I shall advance against the wind, I shall withstand the sorrow.
For I know that I am destined to greatness,
I know that I will achieve my full potential.
I believe that if the lord, the great architect of
The universe wishes, I shall achieve my goal.

You will succeed Mory, you have the confidence, curiosity and desire to learn and so you shall. Just remember one thing, having fun is also a must :)

That kind of confidence will get you far.

I like the movement from inside out. The soft beginnings of metaphor, dreamlike, to the solid conviction and determination of reality.
