Fork in the road

Poetry, Travel

#Travel #Journey #Poetry #Decisions

You’ve travelled straight down this road

for what seems like an age

heading for a destination, unplanned

life seems so uncomplicated

following the signs in blue

and passing the trees in green

when all of a sudden – a yellow alert

a fork in the road

One way to the peaks , the other to Wales

Decision to be made

Blue John or Welsh Mountain Stone ?

Roast Dinner or Fish and Chips ?

It’s your choice!

Holidays, Life, Outdoor Pursuits, Poetry

Partake

Life is a long branch of events and choices

some shy away from making decisions

whilst others grab the bull by the horns

climbing the rockface

or in some cases – jumping off it

 

So – when it comes down to it

the decisions you make are yours

will you dip your toes in the shark infested sea

or play russian roulette with crusty crustaceans on the beach ?

all those decisions – are down to you

Looking for Direction

Growing up, Learning, Life

In response to the prompt

Crossroads

It’s easy when you are young

Life mapped out by parents

the only decisions

Meals, Play and Telly

But then – You grow

And you get that pesky thing called “Responsibility”

What to do, Who to hang around with, Where to go

You’re stood at a crossroads

With only yourself as a guide

No Lookin’ Back – Just look straight ahead.
