So many roads

With confusing signs

Promises made

Future guarantees

Can’t turn around

Gone too far now

A few narrow escapes

Some foothills beaten

U-turns feel like

Just giving up

Winding back

To the same ‘ol place

This road to happy

Isn’t easy

It’s treacherous

And fabled

And unmarked

By x’s

But I found it

The treasure

And it wasn’t

A destination

But it was in people

People you pass

People you pick up

Those you run from

And those you keep

Happy travels with you

On whatever road you choose

  1. So true about the roads we travel, the the people we meet along the way — and those who we bring with us. Those we choose to join us on our journey, and the ones we leave at a crossroads, not only says a lot about who we are but also where we are going.
