What If The Road

What If The Road

we took on the long drive with ease and confidence
only when the road is clear and the world is in complete silence
we took on the life’s challenges bravely without a fuss
only when the circumstances and odds are upon us

what if the road is a long narrow stretch?
will you still take on the challenge and put your skills to the edge?
what if the road is icy and slippery; treacherous?
will you take on and proceed to your destination even if its dangerous?

the road is not always clear and safe
life is not always a bed of roses, the question is
are you strong enough to take the risk?
or are you weak to just tweak and retreat?

    You remind us that even with all of the roadblocks, detours, and rough patches we need to keep moving down that road. πŸ™‚
