Many are the crossroads of life,
that challenge who we are.


Many are the decisions made
based on what we want,
rather than,
on who we want to be.

And soon, we become
the embodiment of our wants,
and dwell in the shallow end
of the ocean of life.

And when, as always,
life's tides ebb and flow,
the shifting sands of where we dwell,
challenge our foundations.

And I wonder;
Did I build to close to the shore????
