Favorite Quote:
Happiness is as a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but which if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.
- Nathaniel Hawthorne

The path of life.
Does it bend, does it curve?
Is it bumpy, or paved with care?
Is there someone with you?
Pulling you along the right way?
Is there a fork in the road?
Which way do you choose?
It’s your path.
Are there bridges?
To cross a river or stream?
Are there big trees swaying in the breeze?
Do you hear sounds?
Your favorite song to hum along,
As you skip to the beat.
Is it surreal?
Does it feel like you’re not moving at all?
Like something else is moving but not you.
That’s the feeling.
The path of life is ours to choose.
How will you live it?

I was walking in the park the other day, and I was inspired by the beauty of the path I was walking on. This path represented my life.
