The Trail Of Tears - Poem by Lisa LaTrovato

You turn sharply around corners unaware of what lies ahead.
Following the trail you encounter snow, sleet, mud and extreme heat.
Stopping to catch your breath you take in your surroundings and realize the trail has
led to a crossroads and you must choose the fate of your future.
Your choices are to stop where you are, decide to plunge forward sacrificing your
chances for happiness or growing back where you came from and where you know you
will be unhappy but secure.
The trail of tears forces you to sacrifice your happiness and the person you love.
