Poem of the Week (19 October 2010) Journey of Life

Selected by Eileen T O'Neill

This Poem can be found at:

Journey of Life

Weights that I carry
Through a year of agony
About to end finally
A new window of hope
Bridges between the gaps
The unknown and the past
I will dare lose my doubts
And should I need to forget
To find the right rough path
A leaf of life has fallen
Comes a new, better one
Nourish it, for it to bloom
Avenues of the future
Promise of new adventures
With touch of sweet tortures
Float, the dawn has come
Pack your spirit with dreams
Sail away with optimism
A new journey has begun…

~ Ronald Mallari
