Enigma…

Each day we face similar choices depending on daily scenario’s. Recently…I have been reminded of how I was feeling a year ago and so with that I present….  ~ Enigma

path

΅〜  ೋღ ღೋ     〜΅

 There on a path to future lies converging trails…

One reminds me of better days long gone…

One leads to the promise of future…

  ΅∼ ೋღ ღೋ      ∼΅

I sit…think…ponder…

Why does one necessarily negate the other?

Conflicted confusion…

  ΅∼ ೋღ ღೋ      ∼΅

The future is hope, risk, love, heartbreak, having, losing…

As is life in all of its ups, downs and all arounds…

Tumultuous emotions wash over me as I wonder which path…

All the while knowing, as I always have, that life moves in one direction…

΅∼ ೋღ ღೋ      ∼΅

I cry silent hidden tears as the truth permeates me…

Time moves in one direction…

Always to the future…

Never to past…

I know this and yet…

It feels as though letting go of the past means it truly is gone…

΅∼ ೋღ ღೋ      ∼΅    

Two paths converge into one…

I know I must take the one to the future, because that is the way of life…

Always moving forward despite anyone or anything…

Time is an enigma which marches on irreverent of feeling…

Void of thought or emotion…

We choose to move with it or forever be trapped in the loneliness of the black void…

I will no longer be trapped in the void…

΅∼ ೋღ ღೋ      ∼΅    

Sweet encouraging voices beckon me to life, irregardless of the risk I know it brings…

I follow time’s path because of hope that will wash away melancholy…

I take the leap of faith..

Knowing only one thing for sure…

Time marches ever forward and now I am its companion…

One step…

Here I go…

  1. One step at a time and no rush! Neither path negates the other, they are parallel and you are able to bounce between them at will. You wouldn’t stay sane without either path so you compromise.

    I haven’t seen this view from your eyes very much much before but i do believe that you keep the best of the past with you and move forward with a light heart to whatever the future holds…I hear that is may have some good points to it…xxxx

      You are correct….we do keep the best of the past and carry it forth into the future. Agreed….I have heard that the future does indeed have some very good points to it… xxxx ~
