Life is Like a Maze

Posted by Christina Morley |

Life is like a maze of crisscrossing roads
A turn-off here or an exit there
Do I go left or right?
Is it up or down?
How do I keep from getting turned around?
All roads don’t lead to the same place
Feeling jammed in
Needing some space
Looking for the right exit
But God, which one?
I’m not having any fun
Often the sign-boards just don’t make sense
Help! I’m feeling tense
Looking for the right connection
Maybe I should stop
Take time for reflection
Even ask someone a question
Does anyone understand?
I feel like it’s out of my hands
Oh, but wait
I’m not bound by fate
I’ll find the roads meant for me
Traveling the Way of my destiny
Choosing to enjoy the ride
Taking time to see the view
No longer feeling blue
Helping others on their way
Makes it a better day

I love your poem, it is very touching. It reminds me of a time I was at a cross road myself. Luckily I made the right choice.
I am a new blogger, please follow me back and I am following you. I also have some interesting poems to share. Thanks.

Thanks for the follow and taking the time to comment! I'm glad you made the right choice. Life is filled with choices along the way, sometimes big ones and sometimes small ones, but they all make a difference. I'm heading over to your blog now.

God bless,
Tina

Also, how's your daughter liking Cape Town? I've traveled a lot and I think it's one of the prettiest cities in the world. It's a wonderful experience to travel abroad and I'm sure this will enrich her life. We live about two hours away, but hardly ever make the trip because of gas (petrol) prices.

I've been to Colorado as a kid for a family reunion. Last time I was in the States with my own family was in 2002. Our next visit will be in 2013.

Bless you!
