ALL ROADS LEAD SOMEWHERE
In the space and time allotted to us all,
we travel down many roads.
Occasionally, because of confused
directionality or erroneous judgment we
may accidentally wind up on the wrong road.
One important principle we have
discovered is this…
As long as we have breath, it is
never too late to get off the wrong road.
We may have to back up and turn around.
We may lose some time,
But, with patience - persistence -
and faith - we can get back on the right road.
Some roads lead to palaces of kings
Some roads lead to dead ends
Some roads lead to happiness of heart
Some roads lead to cherished friends
I love the roads that lead to home
Roads that bless, that give, that care
Oh, Father, let me no more roam
From roads that lead to loftier air
