Our Daily Path


Pebbles, rocks and boulders Obstacles in our way Over, around and upward The measure of our day.. Puddles, streams and rivers Bar the way ahead Step, wade or swim Find another path instead... Cracks, ditches and canyons Roadblocks to dismay Busy building bridges Until we're old and gray... Twisting, turning byways To keep us on our toes Eyes to the horizon How a man's life goes...
