The Pilgrim's Progress - Poem by Hannington Mumo

I'm set to travel lands that are far,
And I often shall fall and err
For the path only I hardly know,
Apart from those set for a life of struggle and war.

I'm set to follow the examples of those that went before,
The heroes and victors of long ago.
And all the obstacles that average mortals fear,
Those I shall overcome with a glee.

No fear shall dull the pilgrim's heart;
No demoralizing thought shall his progress mar,
Till he has done his part
And outshone all dark's dogmas by far.

The pilgrim sets off with hope and faith,
Though in wobbling and staggering health.
