We take a path in life

Neither straight nor flat

Life you see is not

So simple as all that


A snake of turns and twists

Going uphill and down

Sometimes it is bedrock

Sometimes shaky ground


There are places we can run

And times we must crawl

There are days full of sun

And those when rains fall


There will be choices made

That guide our next turn

And in every step we take

Valued lessons are learned


This is not a race

Distance is not the test

The only thing that counts

Is we walked our very best
