This came to me a week or so ago, and it is a rather thought-provoking poem that elicited some inner searching deeper than that which is my norm. But, I must confess that I am very pleased with its outcome and frankly I’m rather proud of it.. I do hope that all of you will give it your attention, your insight and your opinion should you so choose to do so!
Please enjoy it and perhaps ask yourselves these questions,
Questions Of Personal Nature
As we approach each of our life’s crossroads
do we really ponder which is the path to choose
or is it merely by our own natural instinct
or simply by heads or tails, win or lose?
Is the course of our life predetermined
or do we indeed have the gift of free choice
is the conscience an offshoot of a spiritual soul
or just the echo of some instructional voice?
Does one’s life truly have special meaning
when we’re the victim of an others foul deed
or if by our own hand the end comes to us
as depression is the hunger we must feed?
I have no answer to the questions I’ve raised
nor would I, or could I, debate
for these solutions escape my inadequate mind
so I guess I’ll just deal with my fate!
