The Rolling Hills of Life

From way atop the highest hill, I see other hills beyond Every direction that I turn to look those hills spread on and on Like waves of forest green rolling underneath the deep blue skies The beauty of this majesty brings teardrops to my eyes Each hill is like a problem I’ve encountered in my life Some are small and some are large, but each is a conquered strife And now I sit atop the hill that is larger than them all And I know this problem that I face, will not make me fall There are hills still in my distance, this I surely know But viewing my problems as future conquests will help me as I go

Beautifully written Joe - we all have many hills to climb I hope out journeys aren't too arduous and there is time for some relaxation along the way to enjoy the splendor of the real hills and mountains. Hugs Jan xxxx
