ON THE CROSSROADS OF LIFE

Moving with a purpose along the glory road,
hitting the social potholes,
overcoming all obstacles so far,
only to be stuck at life's crossroads.
Having come a long way,
never with an intention to turn back,
just when it's all coming together,
distracting viewpoints from all across gather.

The social set up attempts to fetter the soul,
the endeavour being to break free,
this constant tussle taking a heavy toll,
that too when it's time to roll.
Left and right are 'supposedly' greener pastures,
easier paths with fewer challenges,
challenges never deterred the will,
lack of belief shown however isn't fitting the bill.
