Our Life's Path - Poem by Lyn Paul

Where am I going? What is my destiny?
A life to be lost, a soul to be set free.
Just what determines your time to the end?
Which path to be taken, finding a friend.
Jumping into anything, Or thinking long and hard,
Right decision, wrong decision. Finding your guard
Changing life's path is not easy to do
But the step you take will determine... just who.
Just who you are and what you have achieved,
You have made these choices following; just what you believed.
Believing it was time to move on....
Accepting this and not seeing it as wrong
Feel so proud about what you have given,
To others to life, for this has kept you driven.
Driven hard by wisdom for that is all you have to give
The need to help others, the need to live.
So hello to my destiny, you are not far away,
You are getting closer and closer, .. day by day.
