A Graveyard of Buried Hopes and Dreams?

A Graveyard of Buried 
Hopes and Dreams?
Many things I have desired in life have
slipped silently into the graveyard
of my buried hopes and dreams.
Alas, I will not let this happen to
my dream of rising to new heights
this my dream of becoming
a better photographer and writer...
to my dream of learning music better
(despite the splints, crutches and
pain or only being able to use my
left hand for anything). Why?
Because I've chosen "courage" as
my one little word this year, I will
not break beneath the obstacles
that have fallen my way
in the last few weeks. - 
(no pun intended on the falling bit).
I will get up yet again and
work with just my left hand for
now to make my dream come true.
Because after all,
"To have courage, one must
first hold fast to
matter what the odds."
