Floetry by JulietKego: “Walk the Lone Road But Not Alone….”

“Each of us has the right and the responsibility to assess the road which lie ahead and those which we have traveled. And if the future road looms ominous or unpromising, and the road back uninviting, then we need to gather our resolve and carrying only the necessary baggage, step off that road into another direction. If the new choice is also unpalatable, without embarrassment, we must be ready to change that one as well.”
