Crossroads


An intersection
of time and place
in my years
beyond the visual concepts
common with the balance of the world
this personal peaceful space
self-centered perhaps
a road all to myself
traveled single-handedly
to the crossroads
of my own emotions…
At this instant
it is my decision
which way to go.

Your words ring very true again my friend. It is the road we choose which shapes who we become. Choose intelligently my friend.

Well Said... liked the feeling in this one... Thanks for sharing.

If you don't mind... here's my version where two meet upon those crossroads. A young man approaches, where an old man sits. The new comer speaks first:

Please come here.
...I'd rather not go there.
Then tell me of this path here?
...It is the road to nowhere.
But it must lead somewhere?
...Yes, it goes there too.

You said where?
...Down the road, there.
But is that not nowhere.
...And nowhere is somewhere.
I think I shall stay here.
...Than you are lost, too.
