Where Am I Going?

Where is it going?

Each of us have goals. Yet life is filled with strange twists and turns. We take the path of life. We do not always end up where we start out for. Enjoy the pathway.

Where am I going?
I think I know!

I say "think"
Because the winds
Of change blow;
Sometimes meekly,
Other times very brazenly.

I, like the oak tree,
Bend in the wind allowing
The wind to pass.

Changing only those things
Necessary to sustain life,
And stay on course.

Where am I going?
I know the way!
I say "know"
Because I am committed.

Commitment plus perseverence
Equals achievement!
I, like the tortoise,
Slow, plodding, deliberate.

Where am I going?
The way is here inside,
The path unclear
And full of danger.

It is strewn
With pitfalls and brambles.
It winds in and out

Of darkness,fog,and sunlight.
It turns upon itself
Confusing travelers.

I feel safe.
I have faith.
I will reach
My destination!

It will be different
Than I now see it.
Yet, I am comfortable
It will be MY Destination.

YumnaU - I was thinking of you when I posted this bit of prose. Your poem brought this to mind. Then I just had to post it.. Thank you for your comment. I am glad you liked it.
