The Pathway (poem)

I wandered down this pathway all alone

To breathe in things I never felt before

With every step my heart cried out for more

A dream perhaps has scented this unknown


What purposes would this journey help restore

What wind of thought would timelessness dethrone

What tattered place was waiting to be sown

Were mindless things this pathway breathed ignore


So on I went to leave all else behind

As memories called play with us awhile

Distractions came and tried to cloud my choice


Alone with pathway soul of me resigned

As in the distance wonders would compile

And in its midst a soft familiar voice

The paths we choose to follow can lead us to so much soul searching, but happy memories, too. Lovely poem.

This poem is beautiful! I absolutely loved it. It makes me think of certain memories that come to me sometimes, and falter my steps, on my path in life. I have found it is best to acknowledge them and then keep on trucking! Thanks for sharing, I voted up.
