The Road

By  Fred J. Gilbert

On the road to success few flowers are found,
It's a long, steady climb all the way;
But the scenes that you pass with beauty abound;
And there rest at the close of the day.
True progress is made by each step that you take,
The journey at first may seem slow,
Success depends not on the speed that you make,
It's the path you have chosen to go.
