A Beauty


How many times have we
travelled down a road
merely out of curiosity,
and as we move down it
something there takes us by surprise.
Something insignificant
somehow catches our eye.
We stop and stare
at the beauty consummated there.
A beauty that fills our heart
with the passion we identify as love.
We are confused not knowing what to do.
Before us lies, our future
if we make the right approach
or our downfall if we turn away.
Do we stride forward
or do we hesitate and take care.
The decision is only ours
in what we should do.

    beautifully explained, the process of observation and reflection...
    step back and have a good look around

    Making the right decisions, we can only go by our gut feeling and listen to the wispers. Making the right life decision can be a huge reward. Wonderful poem David, a true treasure.

    A thoughtful poem about freedom of choice. It certainly requires courage to follow the heart and take love's course. It's so much easier to stay with the predictable, even if it's unsatisfying. Something tells me you usually make the courageous choice, though David. Enjoyable poem. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply
