TRIALS' OF A MAN

    Once a child, a small boy from many seasons' past,

       In this time and place destined to be a man.

       Through many battles I've had to persevere,

      Like heading Into a strong neve rending wind.

   I'm learning to move away from the confrontation,

      Choosing a new direction, energy not wasted.

  Struggling to do everything right as I walk forward,

 Positive lessons' to take ahead, I've learned from my past.

  At one time I put away my faith, put It high on a shelf,

      Keep living, keep moving along, and try always.

   I've had losses and love lost but this won't end me,

          In this, things gained simultaneously.

  I still seek some of what's been lost, still within reach,

             Some gone forever, forever a memory.

                                                                        Keith Garrett
