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!

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

    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 🌹🌹
