Life is an unknown journey
you start ignorant
thrust into a world full of struggles
Learn to endure pain
you stumble across rugged terrain
Learn to not slow
you waltz across smooth valleys
Learn to be content
dreary roads whisper
sorrow into your mind
Learn to stay hopeful
mountains tower over you
Learn to climb them
the starry night sky
feeds songs of hope
into your hungry soul
Learn the lyrics
when the journey seems
as smooth and serene as love
Learn to enjoy it
when as exhausted as heartache
Learn to be strong
night shadows shove you
into dank darkness of the mind
Learn to fight back
mornings filled with dread
for the long distance ahead
Learn to keep going
Life is an unknown journey
