Walking the Trail

Walking along an unknown, isolated trail

Hoping that this journey goes without fail

 

Watching skyward for some warm fun

Hiding behind clouds, escapes the sun

 

Hurrying along the narrow path against the windy cold

Seeking to not find too much adventure—yet be bold!

 

Traveling quickly, the brisk pace advances along

Thinking this morning hike, nothing can go wrong

 

Turning a corner, approaching a different place

Seeing a fork coming up and slowing the pace

 

Searching the mysterious routes of twin solitary trails

Feeling confidence slipping, suspense tips the scales

 

Deciding to journey down the unfamiliar path on the right

Adjusting the trip’s rhythm, accepting challenges in sight

 

Moving along another route, sometimes part of life

Aligning conflicting thoughts, without further strife

 

Finishing this satisfying walk, never feeling ready to fail

Realizing life’s unique treks, resemble being on this trail
