“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

Hello Diary,

Dealing with one of life’s challenges at the moment in the form of the weather, it is referred to as a “heat wave”… here on the path we call it “hot and humid”, a combination of the Amazon jungle and the Sahara desert.. 🙂

Life does give me many challenges as I follow my destiny and here on the path in order to find happiness, and dealing with change,  I often take the path least traveled and do it my way, even though it may mean 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, undestanding... 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.

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“.
          ( Larry “Dutch” Woller)

And though the path may get bumpy from time to time, the skies grow dark and gloomy, I will venture down the path, a smile on our face and a song in our heart because we have high hopes… 🙂

HOPE IS

Hope is a feather floating in a bright blue sky
Hope is that sparkle that shines in your eyes.
Hope is a butterfly fluttering on the wind
Hope is good times spent with family and friends.

Hope is a newborn baby’s cry
Hope is a Mother’s lullaby.
Hope is the rainbow after a rain
Hope is the harvest of golden grain.

Hope is the light that keeps darkness at bay
Hope is the breeze on a hot summer day.
Hope is ever present and free of cost
Hope is the last thing ever lost.

Hope is staying positive when the going gets tough
Hope is seeking help when you feel you’ve had enough.
Hope is recovery from simmering sorrow
Hope is believing in a brighter tomorrow.
                    (Linda Hotger)

Well, I had better close for now, thought I would share a few thoughts, some that rhyme.. But I shall return again one day, Fate (and the weather) be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise…  🙂

Hope the path you choose is filled with happiness and life is all that you wish for it to be and until we meet again… 🙂

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 heart only know love and happiness
On your journey through life.
     (Larry “Dutch” Woller)

  2. That is another excellent poem with so much feeling and so much truth. Your line…
    “Their fate determined, by a closed mind.”….
    says it all
    All of these sites like “Facebook” have been a disaster as far as people’s individuality has been concerned.
