Lonely Path

The more compelling a path,
The more lonely it seems,
It guides the way true,
But is reclusive in theme.

Follow it close by,
Try not to go astray,
It's boulevard undeniable,
Will never go away.

It's paved with the dreams,
Of the loved and the hated,
And are used as a walkway,
For those yet to have faded.

So we continue this tread,
Eternal and unending,
Completion is improbable to most,
They find no use in pretending.

But faith will keep some here,
Always has and always will,
Not to be mistaken with naivety,
Where you can't see beyond the hill.

The hill of despair and dejection,
Hope will be your eyes,
Those afflicted by anguish,
Are blind to this prize.

This prize of escape,
This prize of resolve,
For the end of this path,
The prize is love.
Poem about the lonely pathway to love.

A bit shaky reading this. I felt I wasn't going to like it, because of the overused theme and the distanced beginning, yet you managed to top the whole thing off really well. I'm not sure if it was intentional- probably not, but everything just sort of came together at the end. I have to applaud you, this has been very... fullfilling. Good job)
