Pathways

by BethShelby


If I had known which route my life would take
when I was young and in my parents’ home,
I wonder if a difference it would make,
or would I still have had the urge to roam?
Would I have felt I wanted to be free
to flee the town and strike out on my own--
to figure out what fate might hold for me
and find a wider world than I had known?
But when I met the man I came to love,
a different path appeared before my feet.
It seemed I’d found an answer from above.
My drummer sounded out a different beat.
     No longer was I yearning to be freed.
     I’d found the soulmate who would fill that need.
