Facing Obstacles

Sometimes we must force ourselves to do the things which scare us the most

Challenge authority

Ask tough questions

Not just stand in line and obey

Laws or methods we never understand

Taken action can be difficult

Plus riddled with failure

Failure isn't such a bad thing

Don't think of failure as a negative

Instead look at it as a positive

A lesson you will learn from

And grow like a plant

Some seeds hardly grow

While others grow into enormous plants

They live and thrive for decades

Helping progress life forward

If we don't plant the seed

Nothing will grow

No matter what challenge you're facing

Take it on

And thrive
