    Life's journey goes up a long winding road

    each trail represents another huge stone
    along life's pathway through da hour glass
    we filter out da grief and the strife of our past

    With each time we fall or fail our courage get stronger
    the struggles of life emphatically peck away
    yet we stay on the pathway of morrow in hope we
    don't astray in to a repeated blank mold yet covered

    When trails lead up that sad and lonely rugged path
    to victory st.Da Lord we find in him our saviour
    to guide us beyond the task of our pain and stiffer days
    we find our lives of broken pieces in his hand along

    We go through life's burdens and sorrows
    as it brings us into a better tomorrow
    from da blacken hole of bitter views
    to a restored creation of life like refiner gold

    Against this journey upon da many trails
    I've faced hurddles beyond compare and walked in
    da miles of sadness felt the trouble times
    seen pain through eyez and taste da struggle of hurt

    How much is a man truely worth
    how do one repay the mother of earth
    how much is a woman worth
    how do she get out from under da curse

    What mold has been cast for generation to be
    how do one find da life of which to be happy
    even when we seem weak and soft mentally
    da soul is strong and filled in will power spiritually

    Tis journey is now da beginning of life treasures
    where i have visited and saw the worth of growth
    da helms of life and felt da realsm of being there
    patiently awaiting da gates to open and da wall to fall

    Been hit by evil and hell without a touch
    da tongue has cut deep and long against my grain
    unfortunate ventures has lead me into a shattered dream
    compromised in da society of living wit eternal debts

    who lead da blind when no one see
    up da dusty rocky winding roads ahead me
    I learn in da garden of love to love unconditional
    and was embraced by facts to a loyal means

    Here I am on earth wit tools of greatness yet displayed
    my loyality and honesty taps in my caressin fate
    where i hold cares of deep and sweet devotion
    i didn't stumble on faith i had it wit me as my carrier

    Through da middle age of my exsit I am here to be sought
    and one to reap ya many trails on for i am str8 n' narrow
    behold me , forth i am and destiny is my final chapter.

    Not easy to accept fate and let it lead you, but it is from there that we rise. Well said poet.

    when we venture out into a journey of life it can lead us astray or hoover us on path
    it cross roads with wonders pain and hardship as well love and defeat even victory
    life's journey is a maze of unknowns until you face da moment in life , poeticly expressed
    i took this journey in tyme.....

    This is really nice. There is so much here to admire.

    I particularly like

    >>where i hold cares of deep and sweet devotion
    i didn't stumble on faith i had it wit me as my carrier<<

    truly a beautiful line

    and this

    >>Been hit by evil and hell without a touch
    da tongue has cut deep and long against my grain<<

    Amazing line. I read it several times before moving on.
    The entire piece was a delight to read
