“The greatest challenge in life is to be our own person and accept that being different is a blessing and not a curse”. (Author Unknown) 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

 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,

Taking time  from daily adventures to share a few thoughts that rhyme.. it is a new year and “Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”( Maria Robinson ) so, with open mind and heart, it is on down the path of life I go, making new memories along the way while dealing with life’s  challenges being me, being different… 🙂

 

 

 

 I awoke one morning, alone, in history’s past..
 Left with a heart full of memories, a decision to make,
 Confronted with two paths to my destiny..
 Heart and mind to decide which one to take.
  
 Take the one most traveled, the logical safe choice…
 The one chosen by the multitudes..the human race,
 Like sheep, following a path determined by another…
 No self identity, all bearing the same face.
  
 A most traveled path whose direction is chosen by a few
 The rest to follow, ever so blind,
 Their destiny not chosen by their own hand
 Their fate determined, by a closed mind.
  
 The other path less traveled, mysterious and unknown
 Where one can be different, like me I confess,
 Without fear of ridicule, bigotry  and hate
 A path filled with love... and happiness.
  
 A path less traveled where one can follow ones dreams
 An open mind to see what others do not,
 To live a life guided by one’s heart
 While the other path one cannot.
  
 My mind is clear and open, gathering knowledge every day
 My spirit is young, adventuresome and floating free,
 Not confined by social chains, nor ideology closed minded
 I am what I am, I am me, what I wish to be,
  
 Decision made, with eyes on the horizon
 It’s down the path least traveled I do venture,
 Excitement fills the air, a smile on the face
 Looking forward to a great adventure.
  
 My fate will be unknown, what lies ahead unsure
 I do not know…. what my destiny will be,
 But one thing will be certain, written in stone
 I shall venture down that path …..being “ME“.
           (penned by Larry “Dutch” Woller)
  
  
   
Even though the ole mortal clock may be ticking down, it will be known that I will be living life this new year like I have the past years, doing it my way…. 🙂 Going to close for now, there is a life to live and it is calling me… but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂
 

 Until we meet again.. 🙂
  
 May your spirit only know peace
 May your heart only know love
 May all your dreams come true
 May your life’s journey be filled with happiness
 And life is all that you wish for it to be….
                        (Larry “Dutch” Woller)
