'Roadworks'


When the voice in your head says: “move on” Your heart has its own voice that says: “stick around” When the pendulum swings From one extreme to the next Adding fuel to the confusing fire All you wish for is one clear path What you get are spinning thoughts Transporting you forwards and backwards Do you remain or move on Ignoring the signals The stop and go signs As if there are roadworks ahead Clearly nothing has been finalized Until your head and your heart are in unison Don't rush – Anywhere worth going Needs to be enjoyed Even with the question marks and roadworks ahead

Many go back and forth like the wind and end up being everywhere and nowhere. Much can be gained by sticking around for a while. I enjoyed this contemplative piece.
