Life is a puzzle; we are the clues, and God is the answer.

Dead End

I cannot pass through you
but I can make a way around you.

You deter my progress
but you cannot stop me.

You are the slow-down sign,
the check-your-way reminder
in disguise.

You are the detour arrow
That makes me try another road.

Like a hump,
you stand on my way
so that I may not go too fast.

So I step on the brakes
To re-examine my road map.

And I halt a moment
For a well-deserved rest.

You are a dead end.
But my trek does not end with you
nor am I dead because of you.

‘Coz I’ll find another way.
And I’ll walk on.

    I love the persistence, the resistance, and the zest for continuation. Living should be like what you said. Yes.

    Hello Tom! Nice to see you in my blog again!

    Yes, I think so. I’ve been in so many situations where it felt like I was facing a dead end, and a big part of me wanted to give up, yet I didn’t. Now, looking back to those times, I am glad I chose to move on. I found other roads, and I also found some solutions, even answers.

    I’ve also witness some folks keep on with their battles, even if they seemed losing. They’re still on their feet, undefeated still.

    I think the day we give up is the day we die. Maybe not physically, but dead still. 🙂

    Have a good day, friend. Do come back again. 🙂
