So, I WALK – A Poem

I’ve walked along rugged paths with no end.

Along some of the rockiest of roads,

With beautiful colors of flower groves.

With dust-filled eyes and a mouth like cotton.

Eyes beholding what time had forgotten.

Thorns on bushes, stabbing like sharp knives.

I gaze at the sky and increase my stride,

Such beauty. Oh, where does it all begin?


Life is a highway, a journey of maps.

A river wild, easily accessed traps.

Often uncovered, untapped and untouched,

Not always good, but sometimes just enough.

Tumbleweeds blowing in the gentle wind,

So, I walk this journey from start to end.
