A Path


It was a simple road that made me aglow
the beautiful light of a dream it did show
nothing was amiss as every signal asked me not to look back
I knew that nothing would go awry so I continued on the track.
Every path you select cannot give you happiness all the time
even a cold path will offer happiness, agony and pain
even a fragile road will have a clear summer day and showers of rain
But more than that a path will offer you a way
and that's why I didn't stay
and I continued, still continue
on this path.

    .....every path lead to a destination, but they vary in terrain and the challenges they offer,
    Travelling a rough path, is like going through metamorphosis, a slow transformation from a timid fellow, to a strong man....................a beautiful write Rubab (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
