There are many paths in life-allegorical
"Life's Many Paths" by jaybird1
Going up life's mountain highway,
looking for the one to choose;
If I strayed on the wrong byway,
would I win or would I lose.

One beckoned me named "Fortune Fame",
but a detour wiped me out;
Another path "Life's Sexual Game",
tempted me to go that route.

Then came "Trials and Tribulations,
a wide path for all to see.
I was filled with great elation,
seeing "Peace, Serenity.

Then came another "Po'etry,
that appeared the one to seek;
"Peace, Po'etry, Serenity"
brought me right up to the peak

Recognized

Author Notes
An allegorical version of some of life's many paths.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
