Asking Directions

written by: Ann Christine Tabaka



How do you know
which way to turn,

when you come
to the fork in the road?

Directions notwithstanding,
can you ever know
the right path?

Life is filled with obstacles
that none of us comprehend,

yet we continue on
until the end, never knowing
where we began.

We do what we can,
and along the way,

we may make a friend or two,
if we do not fear to ask directions.
