People Ask Direction 2 - Poem by Andy Caldwell

people ask me life questions
looking for personal direction
they are searching for enlightenment
I can tell them only what I found myself
although it's highly likely 
they will need something else
people look for guidance 
but I am not their leader
but I ask them if they prayed
they often ask what I would do
if I were in their place
I say long ago I had ambition
and I was in the business race
but now I seek to be in grace
I ask where their choices will lead
will it fulfill all of their needs
what will their choice not include
in other words what will they loose
how will each affect their attitude
usually I find they know what they want.
they are searching for emotional support
and want affirmation for the choice they make

    That is certainly much better. I can see that you want your reader to lose the rhyme at the last two lines for forcus.
    However, you are giving up much of your meter and rhythm.
    If I may be so presumptious, how does this work:
    And need a nod, an affirmative retort.
    Keep writing. (Report) Reply
