Path of Life

by Rylie Spencer

Preface

This was for a competition called Reflections. I think it's my best poetry. Enjoy!


Through laughs and joy

Through war and strife

A trail of footprints

A path of life

 

Through flowers and leaves

Through grass and snow

As the seasons change

The footprints grow

 

Through school and fun

Through work and play

One footprint for each

And every day

 

Through twists and veers

Through turn-arounds

These prints are stomped

Into the ground

 

Through many countries

Through towns and states

Meeting others

And becoming great

 

Beside other feet

That lead the way

They learn to live

And love and stray

 

 

 

 

And when they end

(For they must die)

They join the angels

In the sky

 

Some are revered

Some never known

Some were loved

And some were alone

 

Through laughs and joy

Through war and strife

A trail of footprints

A path of life.
