The Road

THE ROAD

Bill

 

Did someone tell you that life would be fair,

That musky Jasmine would be in the air?

My friend, they lead you down a rosy path:

Past the roses lie reality’s wrath.

 

Proceed, all is not lost, do not despair;

I do not know you but I know just where

This fateful journey proceeds, for I hath

Also walked on that lonely footpath.

 

 Declaring my concern to be just fine,

You question what business it is of mine

Instructing you on the pitfalls of life.

You must know that, “With them it is rife.”

 

 You slowly move closer, is it a sign

That ‘tween us communication will twine?

What I want is to guide you from the strife;

I offer you knowledge gleaned from life.

 

 You say that perhaps I could be a friend,

Traveling the road together in the end.

Voyaging your season at your leisure

I surely guide you, I am a teacher.
