The Path

Choice are made

or made for you

You love the path

And a detour appears

you meander off 

And the detour greets you

A new energy of fear and joy

propels you to the next fork

You choose another direction

You listen to your heart

So did the path choose you?

Before you were blind to forks and detours

Confined to the path ahead

where your footsteps led you

Driven by the expectations of others

But as your soul awakened your eyes opened

You feel in your feet the beating of your heart

Your expectations drive you

And the opportunities surround you

Now you can go in any direction
