Road traveled by few

The road traveled by few
I have chosen to walk through
Many mistakes i made along the way
But much i have learned too
The burden is heavy and painful
Every step taken lies new stress
I wish i could throw in the towel
And scream i give up now
But my pride
won't let me take the cowards way out
So i continue
on this road few chosen to travel
I have a long ways to go
And surely more obstacles to climb
But im ready to look my adversary in the eye
Cuz just like the stars in the sky
I will shine and light the path only few have made it through.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this one night thinking about all the people old and young but especially the youth with no parent or family and you have to survive on your own. Its a path we dont want to take and wish we didnt have to but we embrace it and continue to carry in no matter the burden and pain just so we can ease that tension with our knowledge and experience for those who have to walk that path next.
