The pavement of life

Avoiding the cracks

On the pavement of life

Is impossible to achieve

As the pitfalls are rife


Loose pavings abound

So take care as you step

Solely focusing on your feet

Makes the journey a schlepp


You may fall, you may graze

As the path isn’t mapped

If you reach a dead-end

It’s your mind that’s entrapped


You can follow the course

In the footsteps of others

Create a false sense of self

The destination, another’s


So be brave as you venture

Stepping out of your way

Accept the rough with the smooth

In turn seizing your day
