No Turning Back

Sue Vincent’s #photoprompt

Desolate path
Unknown crossing
Yet she moved alone
Abandoning
All that was hers
Long wishful way
Full of flowers
The only motivation.

Lost choices
No turning back
Dusk within
A cloudless day
The weird way
Confidence coerced her
Clear crossing
Brighted her spirits.

Love withered away
Mystic images
Besieged her
She didn’t belong here
She knew
Crossing beckoned her
Yet some moments
Stood bare.

It was time
To gather those moments
To break all barriers
To cross over
Into the land unknown
New horizons
New hopes
Stood to welcome her.

Dead End?

discover_what_is_pi_metcalf_rainbow-610x256

Attracted by the rosy path
Littered with little primroses
On both the sides…
I took this journey.

It seemed so fascinating
To tread the unknown trail
How could I forget the elation…
The warm words of assurance!

Words…empty words?
Leading me into unknown ventures
Little help, just soft silence…
Pretense of leading, guiding.

This seems to be the dead end
Alone in the wilderness…
Staring at the desolate way
Congregating courage to trudge.

I sit gagged, staring into space
Towards the wilderness
The horizon so close
The rainbow so alluring

Forgetting that rainbow is transitory
And the horizon – a delusion
I still move on!
Who can question my mettle?

Who can doubt my optimism?
Who can distrust my capabilities?
Of making new pathways
Dead end is nothing but an illusion.
