About the Poem
The path we choose to take influences each step we take down the road of our lives. Choose carefully and unselfishly because your life touches so many others, Especially those you love.
Pathways Of Life
|by Randall Beers|
|We walked together the pathways of life,
Hand in hand facing each obstacle we came upon.
Welcoming those that strengthened our resolve,
Conquering that which refused to yield.
Inseparable from one another, together our love grew,
Stronger and stronger with each passing day.
We grew closer as each challenge was met,
Becoming as one in deed and thought.
Time passes for those with the illusion,
That always their love will be strong.
As our lives become complacent, assumptions are made,
Love slips away slowly and becomes stagnant.
A cross word said, a thoughtless remark made,
Ignoring the needs of each other.
Taking for granted the other will forgive,
Selfishness and greed become our passion.
Ignorantly we hurt without thought or need,
Blindly stumbling, wounding each others soul.
Negligent we are that we refuse to see,
The pain growing and the tears from the eyes.
Our pathways of life have come to a fork,
Once clasped hands no longer do touch.
Our resolve no longer strong, a decision to be made,
To conquer with Love, or yield to Hate.
