No Turning Back

As I wandered along the path of good enough

I told myself it was okay.

Then, I met you and wondered . . .

and when I felt your love

I questioned all I ever knew

and realized

I was simply not made to settle for okay.

I was made for so much more!

Like quicksand

I’m being swallowed up.

Deeper and deeper I’m falling

and I’m not turning back . . .

no, there’s no WAY I’m turning back.
