I have written this poem, which seems to have a song like quality to it (or is it just me?) for Laura M Bailey’s Manic Monday Challenge:
I arrive at life’s junction
I feel aimless, without function.
The roads lead off before me
Into futures, I cannot see.
So dark the path behind me,
I will not let my past bind me,
Into life’s adventure, I leap,
Trusting that I will find me.
My old infatuation
Brought no satisfaction
No reason, no reaction,
To my situation.
So, onwards I start walking
down roads without markings
Ever hopeful, without knowing,
If the path I take will break me,
Or hope, forsake me,
Take me forwards.
Of all the roads before me,
Only one road is the wrong one,
The one I must be the strong one,
In the dark storm of life,
All the other roads lead me through,
The Wrong road, is the one road,
That leads me back to you.
