The Labyrinth of Life {Poem}

May 15, 2017

 

You enter the gate
See where you want to go
You follow the path
Step by quiet step
Slowly
Breathing deeply
Excitement and curiosity
You imagine how it will be
Reaching the end
Will it change everything?
Will it make you happy?
Will others admire your courage?

It seems as it's more out of reach the closer you get
You get weary
You begin to wonder
Is this worth it?
Will it be everything you imagined?
Should you turn back?
It's getting dark
Will you ever get there?
Doubt
Fear
Guilt
But the sun comes out shining with hope
You smile at others along the way
Acknowledging the journey
Without words
And you arrive
Blessed
Sharing an experience with others who stood here before you
You made it
Life does feel different
Because you didn't give up
You trusted the path and continued on
Even when it felt lonely and hard

Here you are
A new appreciation
For a different path
The one less taken
And you journey home with an outlook less understood
Knowing you're not the only one

 

xoxo,
