You Were Born There

An Acrostic Poem

Once in a while, along comes someone who changes your life for the better. He or she finds what is

already great in you, even though you may not have acknowledged it before, and shows you how it

can shape the future you. That vision might seem like fiction, or an illusion, but it already exists

inside where a dream doesn’t die and everything seems possible. You know where that place resides, for

you were born there. You don’t require any guidance other than perhaps rediscovering the sign posts. The

journey is already part of you, because a first step in the right direction is predicated by the last step prior

to it. You may have hesitated to become great for fear of being yourself, but whatever may have happened

before this someone appeared is the cost of a past1 that has purchased new opportunity. Enter the real you.
