The Road

    The Road

    Everywhere we go
    Everything we do
    Roads in all directions
    All leading somewhere new

    Planning our presice direction
    Or wandering to and fro
    We have in mind a destination
    Of where we think we should go

    All the people, places and things
    Keep getting in our way
    Learn what you can along the way
    And gain something everyday

    Let the rough stuff pass you by
    It isn't worth your time
    Only that which lifts you up
    Will stand the test of time.

    From the picture you chose, through to the flow of your prose, this leads me directly to a smile! Very nicely done!

    True words, Purpleswan...if we look at all the things that come our way straight in the eye, good or bad, we can love them or leave them. A truly special poem is this.................................gogant

    A good history of man! But, a kind of history that still goes to happen and happen ...

    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.
