brighter future

Crossroad

Crossroad

By jfarrell

 

Behind me lies the road I have travelled;

As I arrive at this crossroad,

I will sit, rest,

Consider my options

 

Nearly 20 years in childcare,

But I am not that person anymore;

Suicide and looking after kids

Do not mix well

 

So, here I am

At the crossroad;

To my left lies bar work

I can help folk find oblivion

 

To my right lies kitchen work;

Although recent experience suggests

I am a case of mass food poisoning

Waiting to happen

 

The road ahead is paved with words;

Short words, long words

And the signpost reads “Your future is this way”

This is my crossroad and the road ahead looks beautiful
