Dead-End Clues - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

If I could put my missteps behind me,
To erase the many obstacles...
I found to eliminate as I chased my dreams,
I guess there would be less critics...
Offering their unsolicited advice,
As to which road I should have taken...
That would have afforded them more time,
To discourage my journey.
And less confused by it they would be.

But I have never made announcements,
As to which of my interests...
My mind would decide to prioritize.
Since a few are more obvious than others I protect.
And then one or two are needing adventure.
Yet there are those I purposely neglect,
If I suspect them needing rest...
From getting too much adverse publicity.

'Where is he going now with this? '

~I don't know.
But he seems to have a knack,
To leave us teased with dead-end clues.~
