I Hope You Understand

There is a single path in life

It goes in two directions

One path leads into darkness

The other to bright reflection

Am I on the path to nowhere

Sinking into deep depression

Or on the path to somewhere

To light and satisfaction

My life is moving onwards

To its inevitable conclusion

The path I walk is not a choice

That is simply an illusion

Life’s challenges and experience

Sometimes lead to great confusion.

Along this path I’ve travelled

Sometimes one way then another

Until I’ve come at last to peace

Leaving footsteps in the damp wet sand

Of a life path so well travelled 

A wonderful life full of joy

I hope you understand
