The Road Of Life Poem by Dave Alan Walker


As you walk this road of life
there will be many corners to turn
and many hills to climb

One day
you will find the straight road
to a happy life

The journey could be a long one
so make the most of the turns
and the hills
there will be no better teacher
on your way to finding the straight road
