Passage

So many things get lost along the way
to clutter up the thoroughfare of gray
horizons beckon those that look ahead
despite the human tendency to stray

(another way to say that one has fled
the straighter path they previously led)
you never know when somebody will burn
away the final remnants of their tread

or take a screeching unexpected turn
to try and find that spot for which they yearn
beyond congested causeways that convey
the flock that thinks to follow is to learn.

It's sometimes so easy to stay as we are, we resist change because we fear it but, sometimes it is the best thing we can ever do and, we never know unless we try.
Lovely piece Bob, and, thanks for always supporting mine, appreciated :)

Some are never happy where they are... the grass is always greener, or so they think.

Very nice, Bob.

My path is taking a major turn in a few months; somewhat unexpected yet not unwelcome. We never know where life will lead us. I hope it is quiet and peaceful from now on. I've had enough of the adventurous road.
