The Road of Life

Contributed by Shadowman on Tuesday, 19th June 2018 @ 03:29:59 AM in AEST
Topic: Lifepoems

The road of life takes many turns,
some doors gets shut while bridges burn...
and though you fight to do what/'/s right,
not everyone will see your plight.

Its in this pain, this toil, and snare,
That a shoulder is needed to bear your cares.
To comfort your pain and your mind to ease,
To end your doubt and do as you please.

But what do you do when your life lines are cut,
Left to yourself like a punch to the gut?
its in that time that you must choose
just what path you want to cruise..

A life full of sorrow, heartache, and woe?
Then to the unbridled emotions you must go.
Let it completely take over your sense of dread,
and before you know it..you/'/ll end up dead.

Or maybe being happy is your ploy
Living a life of strength and joy?
Though painful it is to think and say
Patience is the only way

So remember these words and keep them close,
dont over correct or overdose.
These choices are yours and yours alone
on just how you find your way back home

Your clever tale is a reminder that it is we who control our lives, not others, not forces unknown, not fate, not past history, and not family.

Where you stand came about by your own hand. And your contentment is a result of accepting what you cannot change.
Keep writing! We need to hear this message often!

the paradigm of life,
bared and brunt if lived long
enough, with wisdom
first time on ones own with no money,
trying to find needed things as cheap
as they can be,
and knowing you could easily be
on the street with nothing in a heartbeat,
but you/'/re young, and stupidly brave,
and stupidly unaware that it
will never last feeling as you do,
and the word stupidly doesn/'/t even
bother you much at the time

in general, things don/'/t always
happen for any reason at all ---
is wisdom

Poetry is much like a great photo, a single "moment in time" capturing many feelings and emotions. Yet, they are very alive; creating stirrings within the readers who form visual "pictures" of the expressed emotions within the Poem. ©
