Pioneer

Weary feet travel the long, endless road

in hopes of reaching that blessed, promised land

and safety from the persecution of the unforgiving mob

lie just beyond the Rocky Mountains and past

the Donner party’s trail, praying that they will

not meet a similar fate. The long journey is finally over

when the leader, sick and bound to his wagon, sees the

beautiful valley and declares, “This is the place.”
