And I Chose This Path

Rating: 5.0

Walking through the lone aisle
I got time to review myself
When everyone around judged me unjust
Was it true, or my choice was best.

Often we come across in life
Where the crowd around hate you
Because you didn't do what they phew
Only because deep inside you light renew.

Walking in the light of insight

And I Chose This Path

I saw this photo and thought to write a poem where we chose a path. Often it seems we are a failure and is looking our hope. But those who keep moving even after all the heart broken comments and judgements will see the light and know the pleasure to acquire the impossible.

The general theme of the poem is inspiring but the poet may be well advised to abandon her efforts to make the lines rhyme or sound so, without making much sense. Example: 'Because you didn't do what they phew Only because deep inside you light renew'. If the lines rhyme naturally, that's well and good, but there is no need to labor hard to do that.

Thank-you sir for your explicit expression. I agree the rhyming was intentional. I remembered one of my school days poetry where the poet omitted last letter to rhyme. I just trued one. Will definitely take care not to do intentional rhyming.
