TRIALS OF A MAN

                  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 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 
 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
