Our paths are set with
contours flattened for ease and convenience
marked with rules and regulation
start here; end there.
Nature’s route weaves its way
through fields, forests, cities’ highway
every passing vehicle anoints with its own offering
each step determined by fate
who will come your way
To fly together for a while, wing to wing,
Breath to breath, then part upon the divide.
Next time, in another place when you say
‘hurrah, I did it!’ another , in my place
to hold you, support you, encourage you
to go forward, and live beautifully.
Every foot adheres to its own
rules and regulations.
So, we must continue our journey
In lives chosen course.
