About the Poem

Used to be a great athlete.. when the real world hits, it's a different life than I ever expected. What do you mean a family Mom?

Stepping Stones

stepping stones up to heaven
I go one by one with nothing said
what will I tell my children
when lying on my death bed?

I've accomplished nothing in my life
only filled scrapbooks with my name
trophies and plaques scattered in the attic
memorabilia of fortune and fame

what will I tell my children
that life is fun and always fair?
it would be a terrible lie
because no one really cares

go back down those rough stones
I still have a rocky road ahead
what do I tell my children
it's better to be alive than dead?
