Author's Note:  I don't enter contests often as I only write when something really inspires me...and even then I usually spend much time in deep reflection on the subject matter and miss the deadline.

 

Craig Cornish sponsored a contest some time back that interested me and has popped up in my mind from time to time...so I have finally put it to rest.   There is not much detail, but to do so would require I write a novel...which I am.  This sums it all up.  lol!

___________________________________________________________________________

I stand here with every step of my life etched in crisscross lines beneath these
well worn feet. 

Well worn feet that have have carried me for seven decades and two years more
through pain and pleasure, joy and sorrow, on a path of  adversity that couldn't conquer me.

I stand here today...a  tenacious and contented soul with my mission nearly complete... close to the end of the road where earth and heaven meet.

Love the beauty and great depth of this soul expressing write on a life lived and acknowledged as one should do my friend. Facing this world's many negatives in life one either becomes stronger, braver and wiser or one falls into lesser states of decay. Your verses sing of success and determination. And understand that life can not be all roses and bliss.. A fav..
