The Road that Brought Me Here

I didn’t always understand
Why certain things happened
Even as a little kid
It seems some of the things I did
Should have worked out differently
Than they did for me.
Time went on and still I tried my best
Sometimes passing and sometimes failing
At life’s little tests.
I always tried to be upbeat
As we moved from the country into town
Faced life with mostly smiles
Trying not to give place to a frown.
Sometimes sadness and sorrow
Were too close by and got me down
But I was picked up again
By my loved ones who were around.
I’ve never been one to give place to depression
And always been the first to find a reason to cheer
That’s why I praise the Father up above
For the the road that brought me here.
