The Pathway (poem)

Updated on November 11, 2013

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

      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.
