Ode to Life's Journey

Life is not a straight and narrowed path to be journeyed
But a labyrinth of passageways
With choices leading in opposite directions;
With certain paths ending abruptly.
These are the paths one must avoid.
But Alas!
The maze of life provides us with free will;
Left or Right, Forwards or Backwards.

Where does it end you may ask?
Not at some castle wear dragons and princesses await.
Forgiveness, Peace of Mind, and Tranquility are our destinations.
Listen not to the guidance of creatures that inhabit the labyrinth
But let your heart be your guide.
Listen to its guiding instructions.
Embrace its rhythm and surrender to its will
