The Crossroads

The Crossroads

written by: Liam Flanagan



Standing at a crossroads
No sign posts in sight
Do I turn left or right?
In danger of getting lost in the middle
of the night
Dark clouds loom on the horizon
Gathering in the northern skies
Halting progress forward
The distance from home can be
measured in miles
I take a look over my shoulder
Gazing back over the journey
I’ve been on
There is no going back now
The time to go backwards
is gone
