Choosing Your Path

August 26, 2008
By Elena Puodziunas, Philadelphia, PA

The twists and turns,
of a winding road,
the road that we call life.
Holes and cracks and gravel roads,
that seem to go on and on.
Where the road forks,
the right path shall be illumenated,
All the gravel paved over,
the cracks and hole filled in.
keep to that path and the holes and cracks of life,
will fill out.
But forwarned go down the wrong path and alas, the holes and crack will only get wider and deeper,
thorns and thickets shall grow
pricking at your felsh,
the gravel will burn your feet. choose the wrong path and the roads may never be paved.
Just believe there is hope and the fork will come to you again and you shall be given a second chance to choose the path you will walk.
Never give in to despair,
My words are wise,
I speak the truth,
believe there hope,
And you shall live again

What a beautiful and inspiring poem. Your words are wise, intuitive and truly comforting. One should never give up hope and always believe in second chances. Well done!
