The Unknown Road

October 22, 2008
By Rachel McCormick, Double Oak, TX

A life untouched
Unveiled in the mass of unknown
We hope it is all their
Stretching to great lengths
For no one wants their road to meet a dead end
Even though one day it will happen
Twist and turns will alter the surface
And cracks will break through
Parts will be dirt
Others rock solid
Maybe even gold
But either way we live on the road
And what we don’t know can either run us off
Or lead us safely
For a single moment in time
Longitude and latitude depicted
Can change our direction
But may still not tell us where we will go
And to where our journey will end
