The Path

The Path

A Poem by Cheri Roberts

Sometimes we stumble upon the secret steps
Cobbled and overgrown
Hidden
Amidst the twists and turns
Of this life.

And, when the path is taken
Each teetering, tottering step
Will bring you closer still
To the one
Who stumbles upon the same path
From the other side.

If you should turn back in fear
And let anxieties tether
Choke you from this wondrous journey
Then you should never know
Who’s path may cross your own
And where
The path would lead you both
Together.

Outstanding, the theme of this poem opened me up for what might be. This moved sweetly and painted a vibrant and oh so real picture of what unsuredness might surrender to those who do turn back, not facing the dreams they have kept so long. I like your style and thought process.
