Life is a Highway

We are all distant travellers In this world full of strangers, Journeying through valleys and plains Nor taking path on tops or sides of mountains. Each one of us has his own backpack As we follow a trail without turning back, When our feet sore and feel like giving up We will look for a ride that offers us a kind hop. Our journey does continuously go As we anticipate a place where we don’t know, However, this would never be the right thing to do Be certain, take a breath as we go through. If we cross our fingers and focus on our goal We possibly reach the place, the desires of our soul, If checkpoint stops us in any time of the day Smile! Then, we’ll travel smoothly and freely on life’s highway.
Written: Sept. 2,2012 Honorable Mention Contest: Rhyme Poem contest with the theme Life is..... (Title of Choices: Life is a Highway, Life is an Adventure, Life is a Dance) Contest Judged: 9/8/2012 12:00:00 AM Poet Sponsor: Kim Merryman

    Been a traveler all my life. Some of us wander endlessly without goals, some of us set our sights on specific goals. Either way, life's highway is filled with wonder and beauty.

    boy life's highway can sure be a rocky climb, can't it, sweetie? I enjoyed this one and seeing how you did it on the highway theme. It will be interesting to see the most popular theme used. I have one on dance that I hope to post soon! good luck in the contest. Great job!

    Yes it is my dear fiend, Andrea, we even travel on very rocky mountains and find a terrible feet sore; but we have to find our own way to make a smoother climb and never stop because life goes on. Thank you so much for dropping by and your inspirational comments and continuous support.
