Only One Way

Only One Way

A Poem by Searching 4 Serenity

Everyone must find their own way in life
It is different for each individual
You never see the same pattern twice
No different from each unique snow flake

Finding your own path is not an easy task
You can only find it by searching yourself
No creed can complete your destination
Though they can guide you to the very end

Opinions change as you obtain more knowledge
Change of belief and lifestyles all the same
Perception of reality is forever shifting
As we continue in this journey called "LIFE"

We must be careful with the knowledge we obtain
For foolish decisions will repeat histories destruction
Take this knowledge with a calm and clear mind
And it will aid you in your life's travels of hardship

Should you come disagree with someone
Violence in response is never wise
Only a fool would react with hostility
When an agreement cannot be met

This is evident even in religion
Guidelines of importance many miss
These guidelines are always shifting
Just as beliefs and lifestyles do

Always keep an open mind in life
This is the best way to move forward
A closed mind out of stubbornness
Leaves the door of chaos open

Author's Note

Searching 4 Serenity

Words without wisdom is foolish. Guidance without "LOGIC" is reckless

Priceless words worked into a brilliant poem. I like the message that you are sending with this and the advice that you are giving. Now if only people would heed these words... So we must keep on writing.

Your words are great wisdom in this poem. Love and respect is the key to a life. Can't judge another. Need to try to keep a balance in your life and be kind and helpful to the needy. A strong ending to a outstanding poem.
