Life journey

Horrid nightmares

Living on edge

Going through childhood and wishing you were dead


Begging for mercy

Not seeing the light

Eventually finding the courage to fight


Years go by

You move on in life

You seek to belong and that special someone


But hope is short-lived

Mistakes are made

Heartbreaks compile

You see no escape


As you continue your mundane existence

Pretending to smile and keep the appearances

You stop and acknowledge your heart is hollow

You scream out loud and there’s no one to follow


And just as you almost give up in your fight

You open your eyes and you can see the light


A gentle smile

Warmth from within

Promise of love

But you are not giving in


You fight with yourself as you are scared of love

Until realising it is a gift from above

For all that you’ve suffered and all that you’ve lost

You are given a chance better than most


You heart is ready and willing to love

No struggle at all – it fits like a glove


About Jane Garber-Rosenzweig

I am a mother, a senior franchising and commercial lawyer, a writer and a social media enthusiast. I live a very busy lifestyle but believe that you need to take time to ‘stop and smell the roses’. I also believe in taking educated risks and celebrating all achievements in life, regardless of how big or small they are. I am a lateral thinker and an optimist. My goal in life is to ensure the saying “we make our own destiny” becomes a reality.
