(The Challenge) Self-doubt can be a crippling ally. I am convinced of my invulnerability until I notice the cracks in my skin and doubt creeps in. Maybe I will fail like they said. Maybe I’m biting off more than I can chew and I’ll choke. Maybe I should give up, turn back, and go home. No! Life is defined by challenge, by obstacle and obstinacy. I both test and am tested, prove and prevail. The ogham fid is h-Úath for danger, despair, and facing down fear.

Lyrics

"what are you doing here on the road?
"where are you going?" There!
"you don’t know"
I haven’t come this far
to turn back now
it’s time to go, go, go
"turn back around"
go, go, go

"what are you looking for on the road?
"what are you waiting for?
"you don’t know"
I haven’t pushed this hard
to turn back now
it’s time to go, go, go
"turn back around"
go, go, go

it’s time to wake up!
"uh-uh, turn back around"
push through!
"uh-uh, you can’t do it"
reach out!
"uh-uh, what were you thinking?
"this isn’t you, this isn’t you"
like hell it’s not

"how did you think this was gonna go?
"what did you hope you were gonna show?"
I didn’t leave it all
to turn back now
it’s time to go, go, go
feet on the ground
go, go, go

it’s time to wake up!
"uh-uh, turn back around"
push through!
"uh-uh, you can’t do it"
reach out!
"uh-uh, what were you thinking?
"this isn’t you, this isn’t you"
like hell it’s not

so what if I’ve gotta make this up as I go? to hell with all the oughtas
I should already know
I didn’t do this twenty years ago
no, I wasn’t ready to be
living on the road

so what if I’ve gotta make this up as I go? to hell with all the oughtas
I should already know
I didn’t do this twenty years ago
no, I wasn’t ready to be
living on the road
I wasn't ready to be living on the road
I wasn't ready to be living on the road
I wasn't ready to be living on the road

it’s time to wake up!
"uh-uh, turn back around"
push through!
"uh-uh, you can’t do it"
reach out!
"uh-uh, what were you thinking?
"this isn’t you, this isn’t you"
like hell it’s not

wake up!
"uh-uh, turn back around"
push through!
"uh-uh, you can’t do it"
reach out!
"uh-uh, what were you thinking?
"this isn’t you, this isn’t you"
like hell it’s not
"this isn’t you, this isn’t you"
like hell it’s not
"this isn’t you, this isn’t you"
like hell it’s not
