A journey

This never went how it was supposed to
through the ups and downs on the roads of life
through the ins and outs of circumstances
we knew little to nothing about

We felt our way in the darkness
our hands gripping for the switch on a bulb
to show us the light in our ways
and expose the paths to understanding

We planned every detail
only for it all to fall apart
We improvised in the worst of times
only to find the brightest of days
trapped in the clutches of destitution

The ideal self never manifested
misery prolonged
never lasting long enough to overcome us

Our toes dipped in the pools of hardship
while our fingers touched over the surfaces of bliss
We gathered ourselves through the days and nights
a step at a time through peace and fight
