Oh The Things You Will See

 

Oh the things you will see

If you coach with me.

New cultures and places,

Better use of programs and spaces.

 

Pursuing your dreams,

Finding your purpose without any doubt.

From “maybe” steps, to baby steps,

You can start on your journey,

And bettering yourself,

Or checking off Goals,

You quickly approach!
