A Walk To The City And Back - Poem by Jona PoloRamirez

'The road we travel is always a choice, wherever it leads to, our mind must never fail to stir.'Jona Polo-Ramirez

Why tarry when the road is full of green pastures,
The sun is shining - a smile painted in the blue sky.
Why tarry the lights on the streets are bright as the stars,
The lamp post stands like dignitaries waiting to guide your way.
Marching band passes by, the neon lights add colors
To a dark yet lively night - a contrast to green pastures
Up yon, ' the road on the other side, what causes you to tarry?
Take the other side of the road, the lane is wider,
The traffic is slow, there's more time to think than tarry,
The meadows on this side are lusciously green with life,
The heifers are grazing and yonder is the sky; hazy and grey.
Tarry not, take a day at a time, the sweet scent of the breeze
A smile to a leafy green tree, on the lake the bright color of the day,
A reflection of the blue sky tainted with sheep-like fur of white.
Tarry not, life is too short to make it last, bejewel each moment,
Adorn it whichever makes your life worthwhile and enjoy while it lasts.
