A poetic endeavor

Hi everyone! Today I'm posting a poem written by my daughter. So proud of her but that's natural. Hope you like it as well.
                                         THE ROAD

I start from the route you choose to travel
Made of coal tar or just of gravel

I emerge from a beautiful ridge
Or connect two banks forming a bridge

I’m the cause of much confusion
And many a times cause an illusion

I help you get to your destination
Be it real or just imagination

I don’t care about where you belong
Discrimination is past me, I take everyone along

I stretch along and divide in two
You choose the one you want to

Some take the path their mind set
But some don’t take and they regret

 You can travel in day or in the night
Enjoying the sun or the moonlight

 I stretch as long as the river Nile  
Or end after covering only a mile

I pass through the forest, I lead to the beach
You can find roaming on me, insects like a leech

Sometimes under a tree-cover, sometimes left plain
You can marvel the breeze or enjoy the rain

I’m always ready to help you all
Have made wonders like the Great Wall

I’m made in curves or in straight lane
Can’t help the traffic which drives you insane

Do let me know how you found it. Till next time, cheerio!
Have a great week!
