The Empty Road…



Life is full of change.

To go forward or backwards?

Or to move at all?

Regardless, choices are made.

Life is but an empty road.


I used the tanka form because the prompt says 5 sentences and, well a tanka is five lines. Making them into sentences was a bit difficult, but I think I got it. On the first read through, this may seem to be a dark and brooding kind of poem, but I hope you will look beyond the surface and see the complexity in the simplicity.

I'm older than I think I am and younger than I feel. I'm stuck in the 80's but relevant to today (oh I hope that last part is true). I think I am more of an enigma than I really am, but somehow still confound those who try to figure me out (or they just look at me weird, so I infer that). And I really hate my first name. Husband, father, Navy Vet, UCF graduate, cat owner (translate.. slave), wannabe writer, and all around big kid who is stuck in an adult world. Overall, I just... um.. something to something, blah blah blah. And that's all I got to say about that.
