This is a brand new journey,

that I’ve embarked on today,

I’ve noticed many sign-posts that

I’ve seen along the way;

Some were warnings–Danger!

There may be quicksand up ahead,

You might want to consider

Another path instead;

Some warn to be cautious,

Take heed which way you go,

Read the message on the wind,

At best just take it slow.

I’ve never faltered in the past–

I’ve gone through life head-long,

Never heeding where I went,

I thought me brave and strong.

But this is a new decade,

and I choose to go alone,

Just hand me my walking-stick ,

And watch how much I’ve grown!
