walking on the boardwalk of life
i wonder “where am i”

is the road ahead straight or curved or
narrow or up a hill or in a valley
or like a circular staircase

it really doesn’t matter because this is
the road we are on
and if we come to a junction
where two roads converge
we will make a choice
and it will be the correct road
the right road
for us at that time

it will be a road where we will learn and grow
and cry and rejoice and forgive and be forgiven
and be hurt and be happy and grieve
and laugh and wonder – again –
“where am i”

for in the wondering
there are new opportunities
and in time we will recognize that
we are where we need to be
at that moment
