Question: What say you to a road trip!? !?
I sat at the edge,
feet over the side!.
Measured the distance,
how deep and how wide!.
Tossed a few dreams
into the abyss!.
Then sat there and wondered
what turn I had missed!.
I started my trip stocked with more than I need!.
Goals and ambition!.!.!.a road map to read!.
Plenty of landmarks lined my route;
directions enough to ease any doubt!
Perhaps once or twice
I turned left on a right!.!.!.!.!.
and I may not have stopped at every red light!
Some how I've lost
the road I was on!.
I recognize nothing,
all landmarks are gone!.
Believe when i say it was never my goal
to run out of gas in front of this hole!.
Carefully standing,
I back away from drop!.
It may be a road block!.!.
it will not be a stop!.
My end destination
may still be unclear;
and I may have to walk
the whole way there!.!.!.!.
but I will rediscover
the right road to take!.
I just need to use care
in the turns that I make!.

but never ever forget that the road continues one once you find it!.!. never stop looking!.!. Life is full of potholes I keep ending up in one, just dig myself out!.!. and keep on going on!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Really superb metaphor for the road blocks of life, for falling into one's darkest hour and then somehow climbing back out!. I have been on that perilous edge of the abyss!. I can relate to that only too well!. I love that this has a triumphant and positive ending!. It is inspiring to me!. Thank you!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
