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 never ending 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 

 Some gone forever, forever a memory.

                    Keith Garrett
