Upon this path I stand conflicted

Behind a pain too great, ahead a stray hope

Each step a journey

seen with a weather stained telescope.


Laden with burdens taken willingly

Begrudgingly I remember how I couldnt cope

Adding more weight to my shoulder

Back arched, yet I trudge higher up this slope.


A dawn rises and I feel priviledged

There was a time my only course, a rope

So every day away from the gurney

Is a day I shall not mope.


Even if every step was not taken merrily

Each new day breathes imagery like a kaleidoscope

and another chance to grow ever older

Makes this grand journey worth its wide scope.
