How often we we must bear the
challenges of life;
The endless roller coaster
between happiness and sorrow;
The constant ups and downs of
And always the question remains ...
Life is not an easy road for most;
It twists and turns with many forks
in the road,
Although always, and inevitably,
we're given a choice ...
Do we turn to the right ... or the
Do we take the high road ... or the
Decisions are not easy for those
struggling for direction ...
And sometimes the many choices
and signs become overwhelming.
While standing at a crossroad in
The urge to take the most
The road with least resistance ...
The shortest or most travelled
And yet, if we've been down that
comfortable route before;
Have gleaned its lessons lessons in life,
and learned from our experiences;
Do we yet again follow the known?
Or does our destiny lie in another
The fear of the road less travelled
is tangible and all too real;
It manifests itself in many ways
And tends to cloud the issues that
might otherwise be clear.
It is in these times of confusion,
That we must seek peace and
Time to contemplate on our life,
Our experiences and our choices
Time to look back, and reflect on
what we've learned
Without fear of confusion.
For only each of us knows our own
Our unique past and personal
The experiences that brought us
to the crossroads we now face.
We can always learn a small
degree from others experience,
And yet ... no one person can walk
in our shoes,
Others know not, the trials and
tribulations faced in private ...
For each is individual ... unique ...
And that is why ... while standing at
Only "we" can formulate the
The true direction that lies within;
The choices we must deliberate on
with clarity and wisdom
For it is only through personal
That we can choose our
... our next adventure;
... And the future we will embrace.
