Good Morning Bloggers! Inspiration comes from all sources in life for my poetry and a great deal of mine are talks I have with God and my family. Today's poem is one of those talks. The Road I Travel was featured by poetry.com, now Lulu Poetry. It was awarded the International Poet Society Laureate Award in 2006 and is featured on a CD albulm of poetry. I received an amazing crystal statue of a hand on a pedestal with an etched blue crystal globe of the world in the palm for this award. It speaks to my children of the difficulties I have faced in life and to remind them no matter what mistakes we make in life, I will always be their mother.
The Road I Travel
The journey started long ago;
where it ends I do not know.
Valleys, mountains climbed;
obstacles blocking all the time.
Thanking my faith and all creation,
sustain me, fill me, support and love...
Grace, freely given from those above.
Despair and grief, joy and laughter;
Life is eternal, none else matters.
Emptying out my burdensome sorrows
For who knows about life, tomorrow?
Today is real, I am alive,
happiness, for this I strive.
My legacy will remain,
The seeds I planted grow!
You, my loving children
Are sure to show the love
and Guidance I have given,
Travel along my winding path; learn as I have,
Attempt to grasp the knowledge only you can gain,
Forever loving, your mother, I remain.
