Mounting Pathways - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak
Chasms mounting pathways to enlightenment,
avariciously await failures of individuals.
Taking away all footholds, climbing and
growing becomes a difficult if not impossible
Regardless of age, creed or race, life asks
from each of us steps we'd prefer not to take.
Levels of achieving are not dependent upon
intelligence or common sense - just a small
thing called desire is required.
Survival instinct, as technically it's known;
contemplating life a little ahead of time,
striving to attain a leading edge without
falling back down into a chasm.
Bringing hope with each person's new success,
we talk and help one another to cope and
continue living - each to our own future.
