A Path

When I come
I cannot stay;
When I go
I lose my way.
When I think
I get confused;
For what I find
Keeps me amused.
I've often felt
The gift of pain;
The song it sings
Is an endless refrain.
I pity all those
Who pity me
For we all share
Life's indignity.
The hands of time
Have crossed my face;
But I'm not willing
To slow the pace.
A night, a day
No time to lose;
Right or wrong
A privilege to chose.
I am in love
With all I see;
The mystic truth
Of eternity.

    The mystic truth of eternity indeed. Well, me being "The Highlander" I'll leave eternal notes for eternity, for I'll never sleep and wander free. Another fine piece Elizabeth, you sure know how to write :)

    A fight, a race and a test of pain. TO THE PAIN THEN! :) Beautiful poetry Elizabeth, I love the inspirational tone and 'a privilege to chose' was a great line, it is indeed.

    One cannot denigh the true gift of art. when we miss the ... or close our eyes to and know that this is true art. we are not to ignore Gods gifts or something will surely be missed. thou my equal has been missed. all because of a single twist. but now that barrier has been broken.let us rely on things that are spoken. only because you are my equil in poetry. nothing less. john

    But I'm not willing to slow the pace. That's what I meant to put in the bowl.

    And life is lived within each soul. The path one takes will bear the tole. The yin and yang and oh my lord! Is all that one soul can afford.
