The Road Less Traveled
To some the ascent isn’t worth
the effort and cost,
bruised knuckles and skinned knees
the strain on the heart and mind.
But for the few willing to dare,
they are the ones who gain,
they feel their heart beat
with all the passion and exhilaration
that life has to offer.
To reach the summit
and breathe the air that few have tasted,
see a view that others only dream of,
experience something beyond the ken
of the cattle in the streets.
Understanding how much more
there is to life.
Rarely are we granted the opportunity.
Rarer still does someone accept the challenge,
forsaking the safe monotony of highway life,
for the road less traveled.
Be strong, be courageous the sun has risen again and we can see. Today the earth has not claimed us, so let us live for who knows about tomorrow……
