The Road We Travel

Once i heard tell of a road in the west

one that runs for many miles.
its full of twists,
of holes,
of hills.
Of sadness and of smiles.

a road that will challenge you,
that will kill you if you falter.
a road of love and loss,
and of branches that always alter.

this road is unending tranquility,
this road is unyelding strife.

in the west it has a name.
this road its name is life.

Yes Rhys, I meant the latter!
Don't worry so much about revisiting work. I never do and I'm well known for not editing after I've published. Once I let them go they're gone.

regards again,

LIFE ROAD is that a poem?
or do you mean the idea of a metaphoric road of life exists in most places?
