The Journey

At times I wish I’d made the choice,
to follow my youth’s ‘Inner Voice’.
To see the world; it’s loves its woes
and follow where my own whim goes.
Instead I married – a different path
that ties one to a home and hearth.
So torn between two lives to lead
I found much joy but still a need.
A need to quest for something higher
still feeds the flames; my ‘Inner Fire’
But then I know both are still mine;
I smile and know life works out fine.
It’s been a Journey – what a trip;
a life lived “shooting from the hip”.
I’ve missed at times and lost my way
but found it on another day.
I’ve seen worlds that I will not miss;
I’ve shared so much that was pure bliss.
And still I blunder off the trail
but know that life can never fail.
At end of day, I look around
and tears are there but joys abound.

About a foolhardy florilegium

Nullius addictus iurare in verba magistri, quo me cumque rapit tempestas, deferor hospes.
