Along the Road

I came across the poem from Mitch Albom’s book, Have a Little Faith. It’s a beautiful poem by an American poet, Robert Browning Hamilton. You certainly learn a lot when you walk through troubles, even when you have to walk through the valley of the shadow of death.

 

Along the Road

I walked a mile with Pleasure;
She chattered all the way,
But left me none the wiser
For all she had to say.

I walked a mile with Sorrow
And ne’er a word said she;
But oh, the things I learned from her
When Sorrow walked with me.

Robert Browning Hamilton

I've finally relented to the lures of blogging - and for those who care, well, I'm a self-confessed geek who's a wanderer at heart, who thinks and analyses too much, and who's trying hard to hold on to his 7-year old inner persona.

    in fact it is said that reading much, seeing much n suffering much r 3 pillars to learning!
