TRIALS' OF A MAN
Once a child, a small boy from many seasons'
In this time and place destined to be a man.
Through many battles I've had to persevere,
Like heading Into a strong neverending 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
At one time I put away my faith, put It high on
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.
