At Crossroads In Life

Lost in thoughts now
Yesterday is now past
I cannot get it back
Yet I seem to be chained
Someone says to me
Forget the past, let it be
Then recounts it all again
Puts me through the pain

Lost in thoughts now
The future is in my palms
The crystal ball glowing
Yet I seem to be cuffed
Someone says to me
Go, you are free to fly
Then ties me to a stone
Leaves me standing alone

Thinking now of my life
Where I stand, what to do?
I am very much stranded
Not sure what lies ahead now
Where to go, why and how?
A fork in the path of life
Crossroads beckoning me
One condemns me to fate
Other takes me to destiny

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
