I'Ve Lost The Road To Paradise

Rating: 4.5
I've lost the road to Paradise
Dark shadows bar the way
The path is strewn with memories
Which dim the burnished day

With heavy heart I wander long
To find this land obscure
That I should in its glory dwell
In joy forevermore

But many twists and turns are marked
It seems, to steal my quest
And all concealed in shrouds of care
My spirit thus to test

So hail the stars to light my way
To guide me through the night
And hail the wind to spur me forth
The sun to shine yet bright

I'll ever seek to find a way
The bracken thick to clear
For as vile fate has torn my soul
With hope my heart shall steer

So marching on, and resolute,
To walk the rugged track
Then set to win life's game of chance
Go forth and not look back

Valerie, this is an amazingly great poem. Spiritually, it's perfect. God's truth and brilliance flows through it in unbelievable abundance! Have you notice how truth and beauty flow through us when we keep our lower self out of the creative process and simply let IT flow through us? Great channeling! Cheers!

A sad, yet beautiful lamentation. You are moving as you shoud down that rugged track. Your poetry is deeply moving and heartfelt

Then set to win life's game of chance Go forth and not look back Life is a game of chance. Life and death occur randomly. One may have to toss a coin to find the right path. Beautiful poem. Thank you.
