on the journey towards
a place called home.
I am not sure
if I could have appreciated
the turn paths have taken
or the side steps used
in the ever evolving experience
so many years ago.
While many may wish
for the simple, straight path
without the full sorrow and tears.
I, now, embrace the previous pain
from the times the rain came.
Without those moments of torment
there is not a smile on the journey
of discovering life's treasures
that you hold closer now
and can take on the way home.
