“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson) 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.
                          (Illahi Bedi)
Hello Diary, I gazed up to the skies and saw contrails (jet engine exhaust) made by man’s flying machine.. Many crossing each others path as those on board seeks their destiny, following their dreams (or someone else’s dreams)… 🙂

I believe that each and every one follows their dreams, their path whatever it may be… I too, am following my dreams and know happiness because, unlike many, I chose the path least traveled, which made me different… 🙂

And why do I wish to be different, you may ask,
The freedom to choose, to explore, to learn a lot,
Dictated to by a prophet chained to a myth…. NOT
Maybe so everyone can shout and point at me,
And say, “Hey, he’s different”, don’t you see.

Able to follow my own path...to be me,
Able to  live ….. my own  reality.
And the path least traveled... allowing me,
To gaze upon life’s treasures, large and small
That many others do not, would not 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
So 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 )
And because of the path least traveled, as I pass through life, much like the Monarch butterfly… 🙂

And I do so with open mind and heart and each day is an adventure, because I am free… 🙂

The path is calling as I speak, so I shall close for now… and it is down the path I venture, with a pocket full of dreams and a heart filled with memories… but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise.. 🙂

 

Until we meet again, a toast..

May the love that you give
Always return to you,
That family and friends are many
And always remain true,
May your mind only know peace
No suffering or strife,
May your spirit only know love and happiness
On your journey through life.
     (Larry “Dutch” Woller)

    • Thank you for stopping by!.. I do love Andre Rieu and his orchestra and have a number of his CD’s… my favorite is “The Last Rose of Summer”… 🙂

      Until we meet again…
      May your day be touched
      by a bit of Irish luck,
      Brightened by a song
      in your heart,
      And warmed by the smiles
      of people you love.

  1. “What career to pursue is guided by secure future norms,” was true in my late teens and early 20s when I chose science over art. Thankfully I’ve come back home to art. Now, I’m learning to do my own thing rather than what I think will sell. It’s only taken 60 something years. 🙂 “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” was my mother’s favorite song.
