One Road



~~~

Now is not about then

A moment of the past

Now is not about when

A future yet uncast

Now is about now

And it is passing fast

~~~

Will is not about might

A race we hope to run

Will is not about right

A battle to be won

Will is about will

Getting something done

~~~

Love is not about you

That view is way too small

Love is not about the few

Not a battle line to draw

Love is about love

A love for one and all

~~~

Work is not about life

Not who we have become

Work is not about strife

For perfect there are none

Work is about sharing

The road which is but one

~~~

Now will love work?

~~~

    and that is the million dollar question –

  2. I saw what you did there!! And everything you wrote was true. I’m fortunate to be retired and not having to answer!

  3. Jim Borden says:

    very clever poem; is that a particular style, or one you made up?

  4. Francisco Bravo Cabrera says:

    Love is about sharing that love which is just one…one but with many side streets…lovely work my friend!

    Very cleaver my friend. I love this piece. So much truth in this poem as well. I like what both Francisco and Jim said. “The Osborne method.” Sending you big warm hugs as I am guessing it is getting cold there. It is cold in NC. Love ❤️ Jonikins 🌹🌹
