Sometimes, when you aren't able to take a different look at things to help you make better choices, you don't have a full understanding of what you're doing.
I wrote this back in December with that thought in mind. Paths can be chosen, but until you've seen its map from a different perspective, you may never really know what shape the path ultimately takes. And sometimes its neccessary to leave your chosen path in order to find a way to reach your destination in life. I heard a phrase once that relates to this idea- "to be lost, is to be so close to being found."
Hope you enjoy this one! See you tomorrow night!

The waters of life sometimes,
it looks crystal clear,
in the wake of my views.
Wiping away the stains,
the greens of algae, you understand.
The water was not as clean,
tranquility was elusive you see.
Sometimes, you think you know,
you are sure of the direction
the path is taking.
But when only seen
from the ground your feet rest on-
you can't see the conch shell shape it takes,
in a spiraling circle with no direction at all.
So you must look at your waters,
and you must see your ground,
and chose to take the path or leave it-
for a place that you've yet to have found.
