I Walk On


I Walk On

Forward thinking,
Backward talk,
Silent musing
On a lonely walk,
Lead the way,
Wreaking havoc
On this lovely day,
Small ironies overfill
The cracks in the street,
And shattered ego’s
Crunch beneath my feet,
Smug arrogance
My once pure air,
And there’s nothing in sight
To conflate or to share,
And obstacles
Drift and sway
In the wind,
Waiting to fall
On the path I intend,
And ,yet,I walk on,
Head held high,
For blessings from heaven
Will rain from the sky.

"Contradictions lead the way" ......this is so true to life.

Beautifully written... too bad more people can't share in that "keep walking" attitude that you have here.

Very good word choices. I enjoyed the read. We all can relate to this scenerio. Thank you for sharing.

I appreciate the intentional and determined choice made, to just walk on...despite what road blocks and stumbling stones...May you day be hassle free! Good one!

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
