Walk On

She walked and walked
In shoes too small,
That rubbed and chafed
And made her fall.

On she walked,
Despite the pain,
Through wind and snow
Through sun and rain.

She nearly stopped
A thousand times,
When hills looked
Far too steep to climb

Or rivers looked
Too wide to cross
When she felt scared,
Or hurt or lost.

But on she walked,
With focused mind;
She had a better
Life to find.
