Letting it sit there, on the road I go

I dare not go back, I must not go slow

No matter what the person, has to say

Knowing in my heart, that God has just paid


Going straight forward I have but to push

Because the next stop, could be an ambush

Not being paranoid, I just know my limits

If a tale could be told, I could spin it

  2. Very true words. We are all in a war, so must watch for ambush at all times. Highly thought provoking.

  3. Not to go back is the right choice. We are all tempted to spin. Good words.


  4. Interesting feeling and intriguing poem. I would have liked it to go on and be more developed though.


  5. We can choose to move forward or turn back, be affected or not, gaurd our beliefs with vigilance or allow others to tread and wear us down. I really enjoyed the use of the word ambush. The brevity of the verses give a since of surprise. BUT… The duality of spin was the BIG winner with me.
