Stoned Dirt Path

Stoned Dirt Path

A Poem by Ian Faraway
"

here's a poem (metaphoric) about life

"

Walk slowly along the stoned dirt path

The rocks may seem small, but they will trip you

These uneven grounds will make you lose balance

Don’t rush

Don’t stop

Move forward in a snail’s pace

Walk slowly along the stoned dirt path

 

The path is long to the end

But you’re too far in to turn around

So you only have one choice

No regrets

No doubts

Stand tall

As you walk the stoned dirt path

 

It will rain

It will be hot

But there’s a smooth path ahead

No fear

Don’t whimper

Just know that there is an end to this journey

So keep walking the stoned dirt path


Trees tower above you

Do you admire? Or become uncertain?

The sun doesn’t shine through

Don’t be scared

I’m right here with you

We’ll make it out to the smooth sunlight path

Until then, walk the stoned dirt path

 

No one said it was going to be easy

All these rocks

All these uncertainties

Don’t think

Don’t feel misplaced

You’re doing what you were born to do

You’re walking the stoned dirt path

 

Days may pass without an end in sight

Keep going and don’t look back

There is an end to this journey

Don’t cower away

Don’t breakdown

Stay ready as you do what was asked of you

To walk the stoned dirt path

I like the logic of this poem. When we go forward in a life. We can't look back and hold regret. Thank you for your thoughts and journey in your words. A outstanding poem.

Great path of life metaphor... I wonder if the future path will ever get smooth, or if that is only something to hope for. It sure seems to me that the path gets rockier the farther I go.

On the other hand, I love this rocky path, so many interesting things to see and ponder...I don't think I want to walk on the smooth path, less rocks to look under, less surprises.

The metaphor works perfectly through your poem. "No one said it was going to be easy." How so many somehow get that idea.. that life should be easy.. We just have to keep going.. the good and the bad are on that path.

I like this because I like how the stoned dirt path represents life and all of the problems we face. And then I love how there's an end where it's sunny and bright. I like how you say "don't think" because I think sometime people overthink things and then it just gets messier, whereas if they were to just follow instinct, everything would be fine. I quite like this little poem. :).
