LABYRINTHINE

LABYRINTHINE Life took me to winding roads, twisting streets, sharp abrupt turns, dead-end alleys finding myself rambling with no direction or just wandering the labyrinthine streets and alleys of my life. There were times I had mountains, hills to climb afraid or just go through the valley lost, alone. Like the periods of depression I had to go through for the labyrinthine plots of my life were complex. Yes, so complicated, convoluted that there were many times I thought of just leaving everything I had and everybody I love to escape my tortuous life and start again; start fresh where nobody knows me. Vivid thoughts of just packing a suit case with minimal belongings, parking and leaving my car at the airport, flying to Europe and finding an abbey, where nuns could take me in to stay in exchange of my services. I just wanted a simple, plain, easy life and nothing to care about and maybe helping clean the abbey for meals and a place to stay would be sufficient. Funny thing is I do not like cleaning, never like it. But I could not leave my responsibilities for myself and my children and I continued on going forward the pathways with all the twists and turns I had to go through to find the center of my own labyrinth. 9/15/21 "L" Contest New Or Old Poetry Constance La France

Thanks so much, Sam. Now, I'm enjoying the fruits of my labor. My kids are giving me a party celebrating Marilene's Sensational Seventy on October 9, so I'm celebrating me and John Lennon. Have a Blessed day.

Thanks so much, Alexis. Although, I'm probably in the center of my labyrinth... sometimes I find it rocky... either I'm dancing too much rock and roll (LOL) or life is ups and downs... Have a great day.

Amidst longing for romantic ways, binding oneself to the given responsibilities, perhaps, is true spirituality. Your beautiful writing has many curves, free-flowing verses, true morals all said in the first person singular. Great!

I have so many life stories to tell and leave my grandchildren and jewelries to my granddaughters.... LOL.. Stories not to give up, no matter what for there is always a way, if you have the will and you try and try again and again. Sooner or later you find the rainbow to uplift you as each storm in your life dies down.
