Emotion rides its roller coaster silently
Trotting hope requests scenic journey,
Stubborn dreams cling solidly to free
Potent life breathes calmly its sea.
Running vision stares a mighty road
Heroic sense vaults to highest mode.
Continued struggle garners lofty load,
Victory battles weak soul of man’s abode.
Traveled path grieves for final task
Reflection jars memory streaked past,
Measured trail basks in gloried light,
Lamented blessing opens heart right.
