Your destiny is immutable.
You and I see the moon and beyond,
the glistening stars that say,
the universe is yours,
the challenge for tomorrow,
is the destiny within,
that is awaiting,
a clarity that bespeaks a yearning for a greater future,
a shining light for all to see.
That shining light is hope,
for without this spark,
there is no tomorrow.
This poem is dedicated to my mother's school/university friend, Dame Quentin Bryce, the 24th Governor of Queensland and the 25th Governor-General of Australia. By coincidence, she has also co-authored a book, with the same name as this poem.
