Description: i wrote this while traveling to visit my boyfriend. he lived on the coast, and i lived in the great lakes. we were expecting, and i thought this would be the last time i ever saw him. when we returned home, he came with us, and were married shortly afterwards. a great ending for such a sad story :P
the journey -------------------------------------------
on the road again; here begins a new day.
new adventures await me on this path that i
travel. sights and wonders i couldn't imagine
hover in my memory as new lessons learned emerge with older i have treasured.
reality shakes me as i wake from my dream.
on the road again; another day dawns.
another adventure awaits, another lesson learned.
despairs of my past threaten to hold me back,
as once again i am forced to fight them off.
good versus evil; the age-old battle rages.
am i to be prey to the darkness? or might i
interfere with death's sinister plans?
neverending seems this battle in my life.
sweet seems the tempter's call, yet treacherous.
on the road again; where and when will it end?
under my feet i place evil to trample away,
though it reaches for my heels to trip me up.
holding out my arms for balance, i realize that i
cannot stay the wicked ways on my own;
and i require the help of one who is stronger.
reaching out, i cry for help even as i fall.
on the road again; hope has carried me through.
loving arms have caught me and joined my side
in my travels, never leaving me to my own.
now, at last, the evil has no hold, as i
am lifted safely out of death's sinister grasp.
