"If music be the food of love, play on."-Shakespeare

Big changes with no turning back
Unknown roads on all sides
The fear of the oppressing unknown
All left up to chance, I close my eyes
And spin singing a song
Though I don’t remember where
I had heard it
It was the first to come to mind
When that song ends
My choice is made.

I prepare myself as much as possible
For whatever I might find upon this path
I have no idea where I will end up
Or what will happen upon this fateful journey
So I grit my teeth
Dig in my heels
All has changed
I have made my choice
I leave the rest to eternal fate.

It matters not where the winding trail takes me
I will stay loyal and strong
Faithful to this decision
I promise to never walk back
Though I may look
I vow to never regret.

Though I may travel away from you
Know you are always in my heart
Forever upon my mind
I shall always recall your laughter
Your shining smile
Keeping it deep within my heart
You journey in me
Whether you are friend or teacher
Family or neighbor
All continue to impact
And live as they help bear
The burden upon my shoulders.
Your encouraging words
A light that guides me through
The darkness of the unknown.

We all journey
Though maybe none are the same
We go together
In our memories
I refuse to say goodbye
For we are still together
Through dreams and nightmares.

I know this poem may seem vague, but I dedicate it to you. All the ones in my life. I write this because I am currently at a crossroads in my life and I feel I must warn/share with you. Thank you so much. I love you all.
