WPC: The Road Taken

I can’t help it and why not
take the road few have thought of to ride
the tides of life setting course facing
the sun although it means
there are few who understand many who question the strength of the sand
and believe this path is to trusting
to artistic to fringe driven and off course

Not The Same

Oh no I am not
the same person the same thought
as I was last year
last month last week or even last night I am not
I am worn and beaten aching and open questioning
curiously digging under the surface I am not afraid
to look not afraid of what I will find but I feel
the timid recoil of others wishing
I would stay as I was not

Seeing Differently Challenge- 13 of 15

We all have so much
to say in the light of the day
so much to express tenderness devotion love

to create as we listen
to our inner spark remarking
