Path You Wish To Take, The. - Poem by Alison Smith

Time to dwell and make amends
For all the things I may have thought
But then again it takes two it seems
Can you amend as well?

We play a very dangerous game
When we choose to mate
For though we are a solitary breed
We mate for life it seems

It is the rule in many a union
That one dominates the both
Though we still hold that loner thread
Our desire to follow that path is strong.

We can live a solo life
But we need that occasional union
For some that union will last out their time
Others its not something they desire for long.

Will you choose the solitary life
Or face the union for life
Will you know if you should let go
Or will you suffer in silence

Is one soul melded with another
The path you wish to take.
Or is your soul always seeking more
Are you the wandering type.

Its time to sit and dwell
To see the path less taken
To reach a decision
Wonder what it will be.

    Alison, as Jim so nicely put it is a very hard decision. I was lucky when I made mine, but I do know of others that weren't. We each have a path to take and only we alone can choose. Very thought provoking poem. Top marks and thanks for sharing it my friend.

    It's a very hard decision, for sometimes only time let's us know. Strong writing Alison, and thought provoking. xx jim (Report) Reply
