Taking the walk…..

Released into freedom
of unfinished pathways,
crossroads of doubts
asked for decisions.
A space of ambition
set me in temptation
to build my life
out of coloured dreams.
But all beautiful images
always show dead-end,
unless toiled with spade
into daily reality.
Dark ways left behind,
forgotten pathetic stories,
trial and error – turning points
to a new start to go on.
Behind the barrier ahead,
future brightens its head,
inspiring me to spade
digging into myself.
No road to freedom,
unless walking the talk,
realising that all roads
will make us free within.

    Well SK, you have taken me by surprise because I don’t remember you commenting on any of my poems in MI. Your words boost my spirit and encourage me to write better. Please accept my humble gratitude.
