Poem "The Road to Peace"

The Road to Peace

While standing at a crossroads in life
Do we turn to the right … or the left?
Do we take the easy path … or the difficult one?

Listen to the heart’s passion
And you will seek peace and solitude
Follow the twists and turns of life
For it is only through personal reflection,
That we can choose our destiny.
Seek out your adventure in life;
And the future will embrace;
The true direction within your soul.

The choices will be hard to deliberate
But, clarity and wisdom lies within
Decisions are not easy
And sometimes become overwhelming

But, learn from the lessons in life,
And learn from your experiences;
Let the dust of the traveled road
Touch your hands and face.

Hear the slow winds arise
Where tall trees flank the way
Look toward the sky
And you will find your way
