Life's Paths

Traveling Life's Paths

Intense emotions influence my decisions
As I travel life's paths.
Some routes – a choice – others not expected -
The outcome of each, not in my power to control
Events surface – altering intended routes.

Each event brings its many interpretations.
Repeated patterns – opportunities for study.
Could the path be altered by a change in view?
Or, could I repeat the pattern
And continue down the path before me?

At times, my path steers off course by unexpected events –
Slamming me against a storm wall!
Jarring me with a simple reality.
My journey along this charted course – personal –
Time frame unknown.
Yet, final destination will be reached –
Poem by Janet Hillis
