Saudi Arabia

It is easy

To look into the past

And see the path

You have taken

 

It is easy

To see the distance travelled

And the time spent

Like reading a novel

 

It is easy

To bemoan the speed

Of it all

And wonder where time went

 

But it is hard

To stand on the path

And see your future before you

Like a stranger you have met before

 

It is hard

To stand unflinching

Before the realization

That your life is progressing

 

It is hard

To stand your ground

As your life hurtles towards you

And you see the things that will change

 

It is hard

To accept that life will change

To stand unafraid before it

And know the unknown

Like the path of a stranger’s fairytale.
