Divergent paths.

Written by: Wayne Sapp

For Linda-Marie's "Journey Back In Time.'  Style: Nonet


In youth the road less traveled called me;
fame and money held no allure.
There were mountains to conquer, 
youthful legs and ideals 
needing exercise.
The plan was tough
and I not
up to 
task.

Spring, a time of many emotions
distractions were rampant, and bright.
But careers are forever.
The hormones were flowing; 
desire calling me.
Making money
critical 
at that 
time. 

And so I chose to take normal paths;
settle for the low hanging fruit,
and labor was just labor
without love or purpose;
without fulfillment,
without a dream
worth chasing;
to live 
for.
