I stayed the course

The destination seemed so far and the road so dark, but I stayed the course.

The people around me said I’d never get there, but I stayed the course.

The pain was at times  overwhelming, but I stayed the course.

Life is not easy; it has knocked me down, looked me in the eye, and dared me to get back up, but get back up I did, I stayed the course.

Now I have reached the end of the road, and the future is as bright as can be. The people around me ask how I did it. The pain is but a fleeting memory. 

I stayed the course.
