The Road Ahead

The road that lies ahead in our minds

is often bright and shining


To others, it's dark and gloomy

and every sunrise is a dread


Caught in the middle, I'm paralyzed

between fear and hope


What do I do? Where do I go?

The choices and mistakes are all mine to make


Staring fearfully at the glowing sunrise

The thought came to me in a whisper


The road ahead does not exist;

it lives only in our minds


What we do, where we go

is not all set in stone


There is no road paved ahead for us

it's all just untouched earth


Every minute, every second, every day

we pave it with each step


Sometimes it cracks

other times is holds strong


At times it will seem foggy

and others it will be clear as day


But the road ahead is just an illusion;

a figment of your imagination


Your future does not exist yet.


And that is the most comforting thing of all.
