Paths Uncertain – Poem

Striving for your betterment

Without a goal in mind

Is that a sane thing to do?

To live by the moment

And not lookahead

Will my life come through?


What compels such a man?

When there is nothing over the horizon,

Only the next step after the other?

A true instinctual type,

Who makes no decisions on his own

And instead follows a path given to him

As if it was destined to be


I concede to the universe

And I accept whatever may come with a smile on my face

Such is the way of the universe

Offer it a smile and the universe smiles back.
