Thinking of all the tracks we lay while stumbling through each day,
It soon becomes apparent that those lines get in the way,
We struggle through each obstacle, we rarely look behind,
But in those trials and roadblocks, great lessons we can find.
The imprint that we surely make will be another’s road,
It will be simpler then for them to carry every load,
Our history may not be grand, but we can leave a mark,
With memories of days gone by and dreams we thought to spark.
The future generations can then follow in our way,
With lessons laid and roads now clear, they make it through each day,
Our stumbling and our failings will certainly leave a scar.
But through our own shortcomings we can guide them to a star.
