It is never straight and easy,
Never smooth, often bumpy.
It is never a walk in the park,
But making your way through the dark.
Peppered with stones and pebbles,
Laced with worries and troubles,
The road ahead isn’t a sight to behold.
To proceed, you must be strong and bold.
A lot of wrong turns and detours,
And you may think being there is a curse.
But let your spirits be not dampened,
For behind the thick bushes is a beautiful garden.
The journey may be long and tiring,
But it’s just a beginning
Of another trip, another walk
On a road full of adventures.
