The Many Roads of Life


Life has its up and down

Or it turns you around

You don’t know what’s beyond

Always running on an errand


This day you maybe climbing uphill

That is against your free will

The next day you’re going downward

You want to stop but it’s hard


You may be stuck in traffic

Yet you think you’re slick

Another day the road is smooth

You can stop by an inn, and have broth


The road maybe bumpy

And you maybe jumpy

This circuitous road is dusty

Hanging on a cliff makes you edgy


But always remember my friend

The road is never a fiend

It teaches lessons for us to bear

Doesn’t matter if you shed a tear


All those lessons are taught

For us to face life not for fraught

But to take the trial and be tested

And go beyond what’s expected...

Well said, bf!

We are going through different roads in life but no matter how fast or how slow we are in our trip, we always end up to His feet. Kudos to this!

Oh my God!

I met my match on this one dear Raci!! The roads of live..that will show us that sight..either we follow or back off, to take the next step, after knowing our lives depend on moving on...until we get our call!

Life is one long lesson, we never stop learning, no matter which road we take. And if the roads are steep or rough and full of pot holes then it just makes us stronger.

I wish you had read the comments on my hub Raciniwa, you would have seen that I am staying. Thank you for being such a good friend

Have a wonderful Christmas

Your inspiring poem made me think of an Irish Blessing.

"May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back."

Life is such an incredible journey and I believe it is a real learning curve. We may not realise when we tread rocky paths but everything happens for a reason.
