It Begins Inside the Heart

The mansion that stands tall on the ground
Has its origins inside the heart
Where the first brick of its foundation was laid
The foundation of belief and determination
That the mansion will surely be built
And its pillars that hold its structure together
Fending off storms that try to tear it down
Were first built inside the heart
Even those walls that give the mansion its shape
And finally the roof that crowns it all
Were first built inside the heart
The real work started inside the heart

What If I Fail?

"What if I fail?"
Is the roadblock that tries to put an end
To my colorful dreams in their infancy
It's spreading its arms across the road
Keen to block my ambitious strides
It's a menace that is ceaselessly assailing
My resolve to reach my chosen destination
It's flashing in my face a grim reality ahead
That awaits the failure of my young hopes

The Double-Faced Journey

This one life meets a stone in his travels
And sees the dreaded stumbling block
That dashes his hopes and halts the journey
Another life comes across the same stone
And smiles, seeing a blessed stepping stone
That will give him a footing on the murky trail
And he thanks fortune for the valuable provision
