You’ve chosen your path

I’ve been looking behind now

For far, far too long

At the choices I’ve made

Discern where I went wrong

 

Was it me, was it you?

Was it beyond our control?

Unencumbered, we embark

Toward a shiny new goal

 

My mind’s gone in circles

On a continuous loop

Senselessly replaying

When I need to regroup

 

The embrace of the sadness

Now loosens its grip

And I unhook all the tubes

Of the love-laden drip

 

Evicted from my dreams

No assumptions are made

You’ve chosen your path

Your resolve was unswayed

 

I had wanted the chance

To reconcile how you left

To say goodbye properly

To show that I was bereft

Everyone’s Story

Life is not busy

Only thoughts make it so

We individually choose

How to flourish and grow

 

Sit quietly with your mind

Resist any projection

Too much thinking just leads

To unsafe introspection

 

Have love in your heart

Let it be a deep feeling

It is only our minds

That create our own ceiling

 

Live generously of spirit

We’re all one and the same

The energy that flows through you

Is for everyone’s gain

 

Spend time with your loved ones

Sharing moments in full

Know that honesty, integrity

Are what powers, us all

 

Mankind often confuses

What’s right and what’s wrong

Don’t make gossip and drama

Your own unique song

 

We are equally responsible

No one person’s worth more

As the Universe unravels

Look at everything in awe

 

Everyone’s story

Has a right to be told

Do not judge or control

Just let life unfold
