Paths Protected By Fences


No one can predict with certainty,
The outcome of events.
And even though some may be convinced,
To follow along paths protected by fences...
Will eventually free them from troubles,
No longer to face but eliminate.
And yet...
Those within those fences might find locked gates,
To prevent them from a promise made...
That the paths they walk on will provide escapes.
And through locked gates they witness to see,
Those they did not believe...
They knew gates to be locked permanently,
Walking around freely and appearing to be relieved...
That a tasting of truth no matter how bitter,
Left them to know deception for what it was.
With it discovered...
No path one takes to explore and adventure,
Should be fenced to prevent the journey to experience...
That which is unknown.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
