following a path

years ago
skinny kid
thought he knew

full of bravado
and half-believing

how is it
we lived
through all that
and have come
to this

still tugs
at us

reaching across
the years
the miles

our lives

this path set
before we walked
upon it

no idea
where it leads
only where we’ve

this time
we’ll get it right

(D. James)


One response to “following a path

  1. I really like this coming together again theme…I wonder sometimes if my path had met again with an old acquaintance would I have the courage to walk the path with them now? Such a thought provoking poem.
