Life is full of obstacles

That turns through love and sorrow

Not unlike a treadmill

That revolves into tomorrow

Each step we take goes forward

The one before is now the past

You cannot change or alter it

This now becomes your path

But steps if taken slowly

May reveal the dangers there

To see and then evaluate

Tread lightly and with care

Don't rush through life it's precious

Full of joy as well as pain

And the pitfalls if avoided

Shows there's so much more to gain.
