Little King of Sorrows


A Fork In The Road


Come or go, leave or stay?
staying close but far away?
No way to be found?
Or linger around?
Let the memories go?
Or let the truth flow?
Kick rocks with my feet?
Or withstand the heat?
Check back in a while?
Or put it on trial?
Leave you alone?
Or pick up the phone?
No room for some gray?
Or take it by day?
Written in stone?
Or swim the unknown?
Sing to the sky?
Or answer you why?
Live as a ghost?
Or continue to host?
No place for me here?
Or conquer the fear?
Is the answer a no?
Or not really so?
Have a good day?
Or continue to play?
Boycot the game?
Or play it the same?
Nothing to cure?
Or not really sure?
Nothing to feel?
or just keep it real?
Ignore my request?
Or give me your best?
No answer in sight?
Or examples I write?
Causing you pain?
Or friendship to gain?
Nowhere to go?
or follow the glow?
The word ringing true?
Or that wasn't you?
Another mistake?
Or something at stake?
Fact and not fiction,
or constant affliction?
Leave it as past?
Or sort it out fast?
Quit with the rhyme?
Or give it some time?
Another dead end?
Or follow the bend?
End this tonight?
Or continue to write?

    A nice write. Life is full of choices and every day we make them.
    Our hope is that we try to make the right one, if we don't then
    we will have to suffer the consequences and learn from it. There will
    always be a fork in the road of life. When you have time please read
    some of my works especially Roads of Life. Enjoyed it! (Report) Reply

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.

If with light head erect I sing,
