A Long Winding Road

 

Stepping one foot on a path
All sorts of advice this way or that
No clear correct way given
Choices are ours yet to make
But sourly given responses
Of potentially harming criticism
Alter clear thinking and bring doubt
Alluding truth behind the veil
No longer visible through the fog
The mind finds clarity in acceptance
Only to be lost in worry when differences
Apparently appear; suffocating
The very essence of growth
Learning to breathe again mindfully
Allowing the destination to be here presently
Finding gratitude in the twists
Amongst the mountains and valleys
We know hope and love make us
Loving, compassionate, and merciful
Carrying ever further along our individual
Paths through the long winding road of life
