Intersections of my life

These intersections of my life,

Have always caused me strife,

But isn't that what they're meant to do?

I strive on, even though I’m blue.

There are always lessons to be learnt,

Struggles so that growth is earnt,

I travel along on my lonely road,

But now I live in the light bestowed.

Gaia, she gives me so much joy,

As I walk amongst the hoi polloi,

I seek out my favourite trees,

In the chill of the winter breeze.

I have finally found my center,

I am my own life inventor,

Seeking out my next intersection,

No longer living in recollection.
