Three Paths

There are three paths ahead of us

Not one of them right, not one of them wrong

Each leading us to the same destination

Whether arriving swiftly or prolonged.

The first leads to an ocean of deepest emotion

Where we swim to rhythm of our heart’s symphony

Eyes closed as we are guided by our intuition

No other compass than pure synchronicity.

The second is ruled by a direct course of thought

Mapped out with deliberate, painstaking detail

Down a highway leading to a predictable location

Where the practical cogs in life’s wheel prevail.

The last is a walk down an oddly familiar road

Where both the pull of our feelings and thoughts collide

Neither impulsively-driven or fearfully delayed

Striking an even balance between heart and mind.

Dear soul, can you trust that we will eventually arrive

Where we know we are needed, where we know we can thrive?

Can you believe in the part of you that already knows

What path will provide the greatest peace to your soul?
