The Road Of Life - Poem by Homer Harris

Every body wants their life to be
Sunny skies and rainbows.
but they fail to realize where the
sun always shines there is no water below.
And they need a little rain to get the rainbow.
So as you travel on the road of life remember this.
There will be times that it's rough and
times that it's smooth, and sometimes you win.
Sometimes you lose.
Everybody wants their life to be a bed of roses
But they don't realize the roses come with thorns.
And they don't realize sometimes in
Life they have to grab the bull by the horns.
Everybody wants to live on easy street.
But they don't realize it takes a lot
Of work to build that street.
So as you travel on the road of life remember this,
There will be times that it's rough and
Times that it's smooth and sometimes
You win, sometimes you lose
