Fragments Across Roads - Poem by Maria C. Pires Costa

Distinctive ways traced back in life
Like two roads early diverging...
Their pros and cons observing
Have been trodden humbly
Sometimes cheerfully others painfully!

A blossoming green tree, fertile land
Followed one road from the start
Dreaming of beautiful seeds- sweet part
Has flourished over some happiness-
Days of joy along with stress.

Seeds have fully grown up
Out of their roots steadily
Evolving themselves smartly
In an ongoing daily struggle
Far from the other road of rubble...

    The two roads described beautifully. One, with an ongoing struggle to sprout and foster life, the other, left laid only with rubble. (Report) Reply

    Life is a journey, and whichever way you choose always surrounds 2 sides
    life is happiness, of course if you can accept and be grateful
    You have written a beautiful way both of these, at least in my view
