Crossroads - Poem by Vincent Kuo

I've been on a road
Twisted and turned
Guiding the winds of fate
'till life has adjourned

I've been on a journey
Heaved and hauled
Testing the soils of soul
'till Almighty has called

I am at the crossroads
After thick and thin
I observe all directions
Bidding sense, bidding sin

I am at the junction
Of my has-been and to-be
Only one road I'll need
The road to set me free

I am at the catch
Of the greatest twenty-twos
To choose, I must know
But to know, I must choose

I am in a state
Of doubtful resolution
Unsure of my electing
Imminent life's solution

I am in the position
Of profound introspect
In search of strength
To lead my future prospect

I shall be on the right track
The road to break new ground
I know not how, but I'm certain
For within, Firm Faith I've found!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

We often reach crossroads in life where we must choose which path to take further. This can be an overwhelming process and creates much difficulty in decision, especially when you know the impact this action has on the rest of your life. Through this poem, I'd like to encourage a sense of faith, bearing in mind how you got to this point in the first place. Whichever path is taken further, don't worry!

"Don't worry about a thing, because every little thing will be alright"
