Jennifer Margaret Paul

Rookie (Boston, Mass)



I’ve been told life is a journey
Of bends and forks
Of disappointment and dreams
Of Paths not followed
Choices never made

What is my journey?
Where have I come from?
Of what do I believe?
Am I ever evolving or
Forever unchanged?

Questions left unanswered
Freedom that is never free
Gods that are blind
Spirits wilted from lack of hope
Envy, jealousy, selfishness, pride
All are a part of life.

Where do I turn?
Am I blind or can I see?
Will love ever accept me?
Will this wall I’ve built ever crumble?
Will my true nature ever be free?
What Paths have been laid for me?
Has my Journey Begun?

Love is not blind
Life is not a question
Paths are made not stumbled upon
Walls are meant to come down
Feelings are meant to be felt
And understood
And accepted.
Faith is not a religion
Morality does not mean God

Explore your world
You’re being
Your mind
Your life
Your Enemies
Your Love
Your Soul
Your Faith

Every Journey has an origin
Knowing where that beginning is
Is a step towards enlightenment.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
