Chicken soup for the soul No 11

Chicken soup for the soul No 11

I'm back! this isn't the full story but I liked this poem that was in it.

Chapter 1

A street Kid's Guide (How to get from here to there)

It's hard to get from here to there
If you never get out of bed.
You lie a lot to fool your friends
But you fooled yourself instead.
It's harder to get from here to there
If you set your goals too high.
Then Nothing ever works out right;
Too soon you no longer try.
But the hardest way to get from here to there
Is when all you ever do
Is count up the years, and miles to go.
Then you're through before You're through
So how do oyou get from here to there?
Well, you first must believe you can
Let no one tell you differently-
It's your life and it's in your hands.
Then turn your dreams into your goals
And see what you need now
To satisfy the requirements;
The why, the where and how.
At first you're overwhelmed, of course;
There is so much you don't know.
But keep your faith, be strong and sure, for you do have a way to go.
Take careful steps and do them right,
Take pride in each thing done.
Don't look to far ahead of yourself,
Just that next step yet to come.
Before you know it you'll be there, friend,
Your dream wil then be real.
And you'll be standing where I am now
Telling others how good it feels.
You'll tell them not to quit themselves,
To have faith though it's hard to bear.
So they will know it can be done-
They, too, can get from here to there

Jennings Michael Burch.
