Along the Way

In a recent 20-second scan of Twitter, my eyes picked out the words "along the way." With gentle persuasion, these words caressed their way through my brain, until I was overcome by the urge to write about them. Sometimes words just do that to me.

Ups, bumps, downs, frowns
It all happens along the way

Passion, action, cheers, tears
It all happens along the way

No matter your path, pith or disposition
Yin and yang plague the human condition
In constant struggle between up and down
A cyclical ride from smile to frown

So sit back, relax and try not to fret
When things run amuck or make you upset
Sneak a cache full of joy--keep misery at bay
Because it all happens along the way
