In history’s past, on the path, I had a dream Of a world in harmony it did seem, Accepting one as to who they believe and are One’s lifes choices no one did bar. Free to climb a mountain, to touch a star Free to search the universe, where answers are, Free to venture through life, with open mind Another’s belief, it did not blind. Free to boldly walk the lands, both far and near To lives one’s life without suffering or fear, Not to be accepted by belief, gender or race, you see But by the love, understanding and knowledge of a spirit born free. Children could follow their own dream, you see Not to be denied by another’s ideology, To follow the destiny of their own choice Not to be hindered by another’s voice. I still have that dream, you know A dream that began a long time ago, A dream without end, each and every day Until the four winds, they all blow away. (Larry “Dutch” Woller)
Hello Diary Yes, the only road to happiness is to follow one’s heart, being led by one’s dreams… … just before my wife’s passing she were visited by a Chaplain.. He ask her if she had a religion, she said “No”, he then ask her if she believed in the hereafter and she said “Yes”.. He then said “Good, it is what is in the heart that matters, not a name above a door”… 🙂 To follow one’s heart often that means one has to follow one’s own path, not the crowd, and may be looked upon as being different “When someone tells you “you’ve changed”, it might be because you have stopped living your life their way” (John Pence)… 🙂 But I chose to follow my own path even though at times life put challenges in the way.. with patience I simply adjust the sails on my ship knowing if I follow my heart I won’t go wrong “Confidence is knowing who you are and not changing it a bit because of someone’s version of reality is not your reality.” (Shannon L. Alder ) …. 🙂 So, agreeing with Illahi Bedi.. 🙂 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) And I chose my journey being different and..
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. My mind is clear and open, gathering knowledge every day My spirit is young, adventuresome and floating free, Not confined by social bounds, 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. With the freedom of being different, in many ways No social shackles do this mortal wear, Do welcome change with open mind and spirit No fear, no worry or dread do I bear. Free to boldly walk the lands, both far and near To lives one’s life without suffering or fear, 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, dreams to be following, more life’s challenges on the horizon ( and the laundry washing machine is done 🙂 ), but I shall return again one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise… 🙂 Hope whatever path or trail you take 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.
