The Path

bewildered and bewitched

my path unfolds before me

rocks, holes, sticks

all try to turn me off

I step over, around, under

any potentially threatening

obstacle in my path

hardly anything turns

me back

I weigh “effort”, if any

and reward

sometimes challenge

keeps my interest

an easy path has been


but try my skills

sharpen my judgment

and I’m up for it.

I know I’ll come out

the other side

a better person

a stronger one.

I see reason in

persisting when

none should exist.

It has to do with my

heart and who I hold

dear in there to once

again be present
