found poem

I was going through some of my old stuff and came across some poems that I wrote a long time ago. I used to love to write poetry and I was even published. I wanted to add this poem because it still applies to what is going on in my life. I just don't know what I want to do.

The Road

The road I'm on,
Goes so very far;
But all the signs,
Have long since been gone.

Which way should I go?
Should I turn?
Where will it lead?
What's going on?

Is the road going to be bumpy?
Or smooth as can be?
Will I meet someone?
Or go all alone?

After I'm gone. down my road,
The signs are up;
Saying I can't go back.
Or change my mind.

So what's done, is done.
I guess I can't complain;
So I'll smile and say thankyou
And keep moving on.

Thanks for sharing your poem, Janine. Wow - I didn't know you were a published poet - congrats.

Beautiful writing and sometimes as we go along our path we need to trust that where we are is exactly where we are supposed to be.

Have a wonderful field experience and enjoy the ride! :)
