Around The Bend

Jane Thorne at http://janeannethorne.wordpress.com/  in a recent post,  queried bloggers about their favorite one-liners from the internet and she said….”Mine is  ‘It’s not the end of the road if you go round the bend’ “

That was the inspiration for this poem…Around the Bend.

Deadwood, South Dakota

Around the Bend

When first we see it, up ahead,
it’s fear, at first, we must transcend
not knowing exactly what to dread,
when first we see it up ahead.
We wonder if we’ve been misled
Does it continue around the bend?
When first we see it, up ahead,
it’s fear, at first, we must transcend.

We choose from life’s roads, all spread out,
then follow to….. its final end.
The path our life will be about
we choose from life’s roads, all spread out.
And from grassy trail our road will sprout;
and greet the fear…. around each bend.
We choose from life’s roads, all spread out,
then follow to…..its final end.

Life’s Road

Life’s Road

As I look back across the time,
I find that life is like a rhyme.
I never know what’s next to be;
I walk with eyes that cease to see.

Day by day, I walk the grind
down life’s roads of endless time.
Never knowing but always fearing
the future end I know is nearing.

Fear not I, the fact it nears,
but the work to do that numbers, years,
Praying for the time, for what I must do
before fades the light of the earthly blue.

I was born….a chance to live.
to fight for life, and, if so, mine give.
And if the next page of my life, it be…
that I must die….I’ll die for thee.
