Life As A Road - Poem by Emily Vallee

Twists and turns, ups and downs
Different choices, paths to pick
Over hills and down flat land, rocks and tar
I chose mine, now you choose yours.

I run; run from fear,
You walk; walk like nothing ever happened.
Mine is bumpy; hard and difficult,
Yours is straight; easy and fun.

I travel up and down hills,
Yours is for the most part straight.
I have to keep on guessing my path everyday
You always know which way to go.

The way I chose has only once been straight;
Has only once been perfect and happy.
Yours has only once been rough;
Has only once been hard and lonely.

Maybe someday,
We will cross paths
And you will finally see
How hard life can really be!
