My Journey

As I hiked up the dangerous and slippery path, there is a trail that extends before me, leading into the horizon as I look upon the daylight. At times, this road is straight and narrow. At other places, the trail twists and bends, even branching out into separate paths. Eventually, though, it will lead me to the end. And the end shall be well worth the journey.
