To Stop or To Go On

To stop
Or to go on?
A question
I often
Ask.

I
Find myself
At crossroads often.
Standing, staring
Into the road
Beyond me
Unsure..

It’s hard.
What’s ahead
Is uncertain
Dark

But
What’s past
Has streetlamps
Sputtering, failing;
Also dark. And cold.
But dark, cold
And known..

To stop?
Or to go on?
A Question
I often
Ask.

[A question about life but on this, my 3rd anniversary of writing a poem a day, it’s also a question about poetry writing… The two, perhaps, go hand in hand]

    Happy poem birthday!
    I love your daily poems and being very selfish hope to will go on with them. I hope they bring you some comfort as they do me even when they are challenging! xxx
