Believe

by Judy E Martin

Sometimes I lacked the confidence

To try out something new

Despite a burning ambition

To make my dreams come true

With so many things, I wanted to do

Yet being afraid to try

Meant that I was getting nowhere

And time was passing me by

I couldn’t pass my driving test

No matter how many times I tried

I was stuck in a dreadful marriage

Where all I did was cried

I felt I was a failure

As I didn’t do so well at school

I was never going to be anyone

Just some silly little fool!

BUT those times are far behind me

I have turned my life around

And it is due in many ways

To all the support, I found.

I was suddenly encouraged

To take my driving test

Instead of doing it covertly

And feeling extremely stressed!

I had my lovely family to turn to

When I finally got the divorce

I actually went to University

And passed my two year course

My biggest wish came true

When I gave birth to a girl

She was a longed for baby

And brightened up my world

My blogging friends have played a part

In helping me succeed

This led to me publishing a book

Something I never thought I’d see

But the outcome of it all

is that everything I have achieved

Has been with help from others

And the fact that in myself I believed!
