I am miles from where I used to be
Life was a steep climb
Doing my best through each obstacle
Yet never reaching the mountain top
It took me into the darkest places
And taught me harsh lessons


With each mile I traveled lighter
Letting go of travelers and worries as if they were balloons
Accepting that sometimes I had to face the road alone
I loved my body for carrying me
And my mind for instilling spirit and hope


Looking back on the many miles I feel exhaustion 
and hurt
Pride and strength
I am grateful for the miles I have traveled
And the lessons they have taught me
