Path To Your Heart

Lost your way
From the path to your heart?
The bend is just ’round the corner
To a road that says restart

The place where you stand
With your quiet lonely joy
Is a perfect place to learn
The path to a man is from a boy

From your poverty
You’ll share your treasure
The seasons of trouble
Transforms into pleasure

Because the way to happiness
Cannot bypass the highway of sadness
The toll paid on your roads of gray
Leads to the passage of gladness

To get where you wish
It’s silly to expect you’ll come to it where you stand
To go somewhere you have to move
Get lost, make mistakes
It’s part of the action plan

Lost your way
From the path to your heart?
The bend is just ’round the corner
To a road that says restart

Another wordsmith that deserves my respect. If only one could hit the restart button as easy as said. Some things can never be restarted, and perhaps this may just be one of those, where a new path needs to be forged ahead again. Be strong and plod on, mortal. Prevail and perhaps the sun would rise again. Or do you prefer the darkness instead?

One thought on “Path To Your Heart

  1. Perhaps the best way I can define ‘restart’ is to choose life as opposed to resisting the experience. To choose as opposed to accept. One resigns the self, the other expands the self.. and from that opening life is perfect and the imperfections are part of the drama of life….which you can play with so many different emotions and not be hijacked by emotion. And maybe… appreciate the human experience more.
