The Roads Of Life - Poem by Patricia Grantham

As we travel back and forth down the paths of life
Sometimes we wonder if we're going to meet with strife
Always asking the question whats around the corner?
Just keep on moving and quit acting like a mourner

Why waste time trying to figure things out
Walk by your faith without a shadow of a doubt
The paths of life seems long and dreary
Roads can be tough so never grow weary

For we are all a part of this walk together
Lets flock together like birds of a feather
Wherever our path leads us lets make the best of it
It's better to keep going than just to say I quit

    An insightful motivational piece of poetry about life, which attests to the fact that it'll be an exististencial absurdity to conceive of life without difficulties. An acknowlegement of a journey fraught with stumbing blocks made easier by the spirit of universal brotherhood. Beautiful poem brought forth in lovely rhyme scheme with conviction. Thanks for sharing Patricia. Please read my poem POETIC MASTERPIECE. (Report) Reply
