'The Road'

Although wonderful, the images of different roads provided by Poets United didn't quite match the poem I came up with...  I googled another road, that I felt was in agreement with my words.

‘The Road’

I watched the road from my bedroom window,
A ‘stay at home’ type, ‘sit by the fire,’
I never ever really truly wondered
What it was like out there –
Beyond the bend –

But then one day I changed my name to ‘Pilgrim,’
The warmth and home I traded for the road,
The loss was meant to be, for what I found
Was my own life that lay
Beyond the bend.

Live for the Love of it,
The Happy Amateur
