THE FORK IN THE ROAD
I have embarked on a journey....
not one of my own volition.
I have packed the necessities....
observation, intuition, vigilance....
Am I ready....
of that I can never know for sure.....
but I am off.
This is taking a while....
my body is weary and my will is slipping.
I ask myself constantly
“Is this worth it…is the price too high?”
There is too much riding on this…
too many people depending on me.
What if I fail?
What if I let myself be steered by the destiny….
That is NOT acceptable!
I am in control of my own destiny.
I make my own choices.
I will not let others swing me between their slimy grasps…
and have me be a spectacle for their amusement.
I am at the fork in the road.
Which path should I take?
My mind no longer has all the solutions.
I will close the windows of objectivity
And let my consciousness guide me.
My being hurts.
The pain is intense in my shoulders.
I want to scream…..
But there is no one to hear me
The fork seems ominous…
I cannot see the end of each path…..
it is hidden from me.
But I know, in the end it will all be revealed.
Do I still take this path alone….
am I alone?
The energy of this life.
The warmth of nature’s arms.
The spirit within me
I AM NOT ALONE
