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.
