Life is a Highway

A number cruise -
The slow lane’s always fine;
While others race
To cross the finish line.

Lots change en route; 
But many reach the end.
A few get lost -
And some are round the bend.

For Kim’s contest

    Interesting entry..Winner for sure..It speaks of many destinies in a few short liines..Thanks for stopping by..Yes, the butterfly bush that I have is purple but they come in white, pink and I think maybe one more color..Butterflies enjoy the nectar..There is more than one kind of hornet or at least the coloration..The one that we see most here is the black and white..It was so funny to me for it was like the hornet was hawking for that insect(a gnat or fly) and wham it was caught in the web.Sara

    I guess I would be considered to be round the bend my friend! But there are many more curves to go through in this life! Some curves are so adventurous, others not so much! I really enjoyed this enlightening write of yours Jack! You always bring delightful verses, where are your Halloween ones, ha ha! Great Work!!

    You have described it just as well as Rascal Flatts, only in fewer words.
