“The greatest challenge in life is to be our own person and accept that being different is a blessing and not a curse”.. (Kilroy Oldster) on the path least traveled…

Diary of the journey on the path least traveled..just letting the heart do the talking while the fingers do the walking while being different, being me… 🙂 Me 1 copy ( “I do not do, say or write something to been seen or heard… I do, say or write something because it needed to be done, said or written…” , no nominations please, just sharing thoughts while exploring life 🙂 ).. “It is not easy to find happiness within ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere.” (Agnes Repplier)….. 🙂

Journey of Self Discovery...
 
What I am
Who I want to be
Am I just a stranger in this dinosaur world,
or my is existence limited to rest ,eat and pee.
 
Every day is a new day ,
I try to discover myself,
The identity crisis lulls over me,
In calm, yet monstrous glee,
Failing to find what exactly constitutes my being.
 
One day I want to be a doctor,
Other day an engineer,
Or even a scientist,
The society decides my ambition,
What career to pursue is guided by secure future norms,
They say I have a lunatics mind,
Persuade my mother to put some sense into me.
 
Enough is said,
I my setting on a journey of my own,
The mistakes I make shall be mine,
The regrets shall be my defined,
Its fall or rise,
Time will play a key role,
 
As Frost said,
I have an option of two paths ahead of me,
One pre decided by my ancestors,
less risky and challenging,
Other of my own,
I decide to take the less traveled one,
To mark on journey of my own.

Hello Diary,
(Still in the learning process for editor.. 🙂 )

“My will shall shape the future. Whether I fail or succeed 
shall be no man's doing but my own. I am the force; I can 
clear any obstacle before me or I can be lost in the maze.. 
My choice; my responsibility; win or lose, only I hold the 
key to my destiny".    Elaine Maxwell

A Spirit Born Free…
 
While sipping a spot of tea
And relaxing in the morning time,
While contemplating my tomorrows
Thought I’d pen some thoughts that rhyme.
 
As I venture through my life
With each step, all the while being me,
An open mind, a heart of dreams
A spirit, enjoying being free.
 
A spirit that views another
As another feels, wishes to be,
In a realm of acceptance
So another can enjoy being free.
 
Free…. to love another
No color, gender or race,
Only to know and feel happiness
No social walls to face.
 
Free to live life as one chooses
Fallow a dream, the heart would say,
Free to walk ones own path of life
Filled with adventures along the way.
 
There are those who would color me different
Many to gaze upon me with dismay,
But unlike them, I’ve found happiness
Because I chose to live life my way.
                         (Larry “Dutch” Woller)

I Believe I’d Like To Be Different Instead…
 
And why do I wish to be different, you may ask,
The freedom to choose, to explore, to learn a lot,
Chained to a closed minded ideology…. NOT
Maybe so everyone can shout and point at me,
And say, “Hey, he’s different”, don’t you see.
 
My mind is clear and open, gathering knowledge every day
My spirit is young, adventuresome and floating free,
Not confined by those social chains, no box, no mold for me
I am what I am, I am me, what I wish to be,
Perhaps that makes me different, don’t you see.
 
So my heart’s compass is pointed to the horizon
Sails set full, safe harbor fading in the distance, a faint glow to eye it seems
And with a pocket full of memories, on the horizon are my dreams
On down the path least traveled I will venture, with spirit free
Why the path least traveled?..well, I’m different, don’t  you  see.
                                         ( Larry “Dutch” Woller )
 
Well, I had better close for now.. wind is in the sails and there may be some life’s storms but “I'm not afraid of storms, for I'm learning how to sail my ship.” (Louisa May Alcott)… I shall return again one day, Fate (and WordPress) be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂 Until we meet again let’s give PEACE, LOVE and LEARNING a try, Let’s give it a go, everyone and get on that peace train…

  1. Beautiful thoughts Larry🙂🙏
    If only humans could learn from the rainbow how to be,
    Across the spaces
    As manifestations of hope, & all thats light….
    What a spectrum of joy life would be!
