It is the way it is

It is.
The chosen road,
it is the way it is.

Is it the only way,
dividing destiny
and designation
each in its own
secluded section?

A road is just a way
to go or not.

Should one obey the tarmac
as laid out
or be a bird
and fly
regardless of direction?

It is the way it is,
and every road
leads to reflection.

    Well said, Ina.

  2. I know for sure that last stanza leads to reflection. I wish I would have written that poem. smile

  3. Well, that last line does it for me – beautiful Ina.

  4. I’m with dfb too! The last line is wonderful:

    and every road
    leads to reflection.

  5. I too was much taken with those last two lines.

    The word ‘reflection’ is a surprise. Poems should do that sometimes – surprise us!!
