A Bend On The Road

Life's path may seem calm
Safe and familiar
Yet there are curves, thorns
And hard balls thrown
Along the way
Accidents and mistakes
Take their toll.

Sometimes there are
Opportunities that lurk
By the bend on the road
Giving you a new lease of life
With a promise
Of a wonderful
And fulfilling life.

a keen observation of life and a wonderful description of the same.
So true, Rose. Life has its own bends and curves, yet, we learn to adjust with life's vagrant ways. But hope is something that keeps us going and we look forward to new incentives in life. Thank you for this beautiful poem, dear Poetess......10
