This world will throw road blocks in your path Disguised as people. People masked with love and honesty Men and Women adorned with fair hair and a sparkling smile.
This world will throw boulders into your path Marking you with kisses and scars Swaying you to stray from your goals Asking you to give up your morals.
This world will send storms into your path To push you back And off the road To hold you down. Though through all of this, We continue to walk To run Onwards. Away from their grasping hands And through the pelting rain and hounding thunder. Toward the horizon shining with the ever-present idea of hope. -ALC April 8, 2019
