The Road To Heaven

The road to heaven It seems so long, Its short, so short Where time belong It's curves, it's hills And it's potholes, too, Beat and bruise As I stumble through Tramplin' the dirt And nearly dyin', Finding my feet And still I'm tryin' Cryin' out for help 'Til I am hoarse, Beaten paths do open But, I stay the course Just take it slow Come rain, come shine, The road to heaven The way is mine.

Thank you, John... I try to bring a little of the unexpected into my writing instead of just doing the same old thing...

I really like the last two lines of this contest entry. Reads like a good contender to me for the contest. I am glad it is faith based. Thanks for sharing and for dropping by my page. Sara
