I Will Travel On

Updated on December 27, 2012

A journey down the path of life

A path stretches far ahead of me

and far behind

A difficult journey

filled with happiness and pain

I ignore so many imprints

left by the defeated

Some can find

strength and knowledge

in the

triumphs and losses

Others are more easily overcome

Passing by those who have given up

I hear the same words

“This is so hard…”

as they resign to their permanent stops

I think,


it is.”

This path

this road

this life

is hard

There are obstacles

there are lessons to learn

there is pain

where we haven’t known it to be

And it should be

that way

The difficult road ahead

is the reason we are

The battles we must face

to travel it

define us

and test us

in order to make us

into what we can be

So on my journey

I may sometimes triumph

I may sometimes stumble

and I may sometimes fall

but I will never be defeated.

No matter how hard the fight

I will fight


I will travel on
