Down Life’s Road

Updated on July 14, 2017

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I live in the suburbs of Riga, Latvia. I have a wonderful cat named Sid.

When faced by the truth,

you could say,

that the road through life,

is worth its weight in gold,

for so many different reasons -

for the beauty of all four seasons.

Sometimes this world,

seems to be spinning,

like a crazy, wooden top

and you begin to wonder -

how long you’ll last.

Then a dear friend reaches out

and you hold on fast,

all the sadness long past.

The road through life,

holds so many wonders,

mighty oceans and seas,

majestic mountains, rivers, waterfalls and streams.

Everywhere you look,

bountiful with forests

and the wind creates such lovely music -

as it whispers through the trees.

We’re here for a reason,

as the sun rises and sets,

each new day is like a grand adventure,

isn’t it bliss, isn’t it great -

just to be a part of it all.

A little wheel in the scheme of things,

helping to keep this world turning.

Keep on walking down the road,

better yet, go forth dancing,

smiling your most brightest smile -

thankful to be living and loving for another day.

      Such great words of encouragement to take on each day of life. Sure there are many ups and downs in life, but how you handle it is what makes you you. Great work

      I am at an age now where I wonder when I'll see my last bend in the road, and that wondering brings with it a deeper appreciation for the road I currently stand on. :)
