Directions

You could go this way, the little girl says, pointing left.

Or you could go that way, an old woman croaks, gesturing right.

No! No! You have to go in that direction! the adventurer exclaims,

tipping her finger toward the sky.

I’d really rather stay right where I am, the hermit yawns and rubs her tired eyes.

There’s a chance you might enjoy the view, if you take the risk and jump over there,

the dreamer smiles, motioning forward and straight ahead.

But you might find your answers here, a forlorn child begs,

pulling at you from behind.

I’m afraid you’re lost my dear, feet frozen to the icy block of ground

Unable to move until the fear and confusion thaws –

But when that fiery day will come, it’s hard to say,

And while you have the time to think –

You really ought to figure out where exactly you want to go.

About 365 Things to Write About

I'm inspired by almost anything and everything creative - nature, architecture, art, words, music...I like to roam along streets, through foreign countries, and within my mind where the world is full of endless possibilities. I dream of being an idealist, but I've experienced too many harsh realities for that wish to ever be true. Therefore, I look for the hope and the good in small nuances, and I express my thoughts and feelings about the world around me on pages and canvases whenever I can.
