I caught a glimpse of a covered path.

Updated on April 6, 2011

A covered path to somewhere you will never know unless you uncover it...

You don't have to spend a fortune, to have memories that are worth a fortune... Capture your memories in time.

 

Let go of fearing living...


I caught a glimpse of a covered path,

It was the way to destiny and realizing what I have.

I walked on by,

I continued on with life,


But I still remember destiny and sometimes visit late at night.

One move too far,

One minute too late,

Knowing what is wrong,

Can make love turn to hate.


Stand up,

Speak up,

Shout out for change,

Become everything ever wanted,

Before becoming insane.


A laugh broke into silence,

With an unfamiliar tone.

When there was no one that was looking,

You realize you have never been alone.


Up and Down,

Around and Around,

Lose your voice,

Unable to make a single sound.


Distance guides your heart,

Experience makes your mistakes.

You lose sight of who you are,

And then blame others that get in your way.


How do I know this?

How do I know you?

Because you are no different from me,

Although I can be different from you.


No it does not make sense,

Don’t waste your time with logic,

If you want a simpler potion,

Try some hocus pocus and lament notion.


Back from the fire,

Cooling from within,

Forgiveness for others,

In hopes that you will be forgiven for your sins,


Take your time,

Day after Night,

No need to hurry through life,

Unless you are in a hurry to die.


Memories last forever,

Fortunes come and go,

Could you remember your way,

If you had to find your way home?


Fear is in yesterday,

It covers up your soul,

Sometimes finding yesterday,

Can grant you strength that make you whole.


Life has lessons,

Ready to be taught,

But you have to be paying attention,

Life happens whether you are ready or not.


Now I am no expert,

I have hung my head in shame,

I have taking the unstable road somewhere,

I have even lost my name.


After years of being stupid,

After years of being lost,

After I have fallen and skinned my knees,

And been someone that pays the cost.


I now know to take a glance,

And to make believe and take a chance,

That when I find a covered path,

Perhaps it is me that should follow it.


If I am wrong,

Well that is okay,

A covered path tomorrow,

Should be traveled and hold no shame.


Memories last forever,

Fortunes come and go,

I wonder if I will remember my way,

If I shall ever need to find my way home?

      So beautiful, you are a true talent:) You should be a speaker, I think you could save some people from themselves. I especially think you should travel to highschools, even if they continue to travel in the wrong direction one day they will remember your eloquent words. Thank you:)

      Cagsil,

      I had to read that comment 3 times before it sunk in, lol...that was a whole lot of covered, covered path and path references in not a whole lot of word count! Amazing you are for writing such a valid point and concept in such a tongue twisting, mind altering way... Just playing, I do appreciate your insight and value your ability to see strength, growth and a persons soul. Thank you for following my work and always being willing to share your thoughts and feedback.

      Hey Holly, great read. :) I see you're figuring things out, one piece at a time. :) As you uncover, the covered path you walk, you'll learn that the path wasn't actually covered, but was your perception faltering. The path to peace is all about you, how much you know and understand about self. As you learn more about yourself, you'll find that the path you walk is one that can be seen in advance, if you're willing to view it. :) Sometimes, there are things you might not be able to wrap your mind around, but remember, if you cannot wrap your mind around it, then obviously something isn't known. ;) As always my friend, definitely well written. :) Thank you so much. :)

      livingsimply-

      Thank you, and I am glad you liked it. I bet you have much strength that you just haven't uncovered. We often surprise ourselves, when we feel we have nothing there, with discovering it has always been there and a part of who we are.
