About the Poem

We all come to points in our life when we must stop and take a look into ourselves. The Way is where we go from here.

A Few Visitor Comments

its great because it's so relative to everyone!
Sort ,sweet and to the point! I like it.
it touched me in a way i wished i had read it about 6 months ago. but as i read it now it seemed to reach inside me and make me smile instead of cry:)

The Way

I climb upon the mountain
Just to see what is in the way.
I know what's there,
But must I face it today?

I can only go forward,
Even when I look behind.
It doesn't matter which I choose,
I fear what I may find.

So I stand in this time
Feeling it frozen in place,
Waiting for me to chose
As indecision swallows my face.

Do I speak,
Or do I not?
What if I fall?
What if I'm caught?

Do I look into the light,
To make the path clear?
Will I get there faster
If I follow my fear?

I see what's in my way,
For it draws me near -
Is their a way over,
And can I get there from here?
