Roadblocks and Detours

Life is a series

twisting, turning, winding,

where we end up

is rarely where we thought -

roadblocks and detours

and impossible to tell

the difference.

Are we detoured

or roadblocked?

Should we continue on

or go back to the last turn?

Except that there is

no going back.

There is only

finding another path.

Left Right Straight ahead.

Stop Go Yield.

Which is the path

of least resistance?

Is that the road we need to follow?

Each mile we travel -

is it closer to us

or just more wear and tear?

Do I grip the wheel tightly

and hope the road ends

where I want it to

Or do I take a different turn

to a new destination?
