In this life of roads less traveled
directions are taken by the player of the game,
discoveries lead us forward by leaps and bounds.
Choices are made t the left or right or straight ahead,
taking on responsibilities, but keeping the faith,
an unseen, unexplained part of humanity.
Life, like a game of chess, is rewarding,
while struggling and coping with the world we live in today,
each move filled with confident uncertainty.
Opportunity knocks unexpectedly on a closed door,
which suddenly bursts forth
to the future of an open sky.
Hearts soar, souls flutter like butterflies
weathering life's harsh terms,
flying endlessly, escaping through dreams.
Remembering we are humans,
mistakes will be made emotions experienced,
while letting go of past tears holding on to hope.
Until our dying day
souls filled with some regret, hearts renewed by true love,
wishing always to breathe the freshest air. . .
