we have arrived

we have arrived poem by steven james humphreys

we walk down the road of life

and we may have a destination in mind

yet things change and the road disappears around the next bend

and it keeps on going and never seems to stop at a dead end

it is always a new road where we are going

not on a map but long as we endure through time passing

and we stop and take breaks and use our compass

to get our bearings on a snake shaped road

and somehow one thing leads to another

and we arrive at that somewhere

we never thought we’d be

and it’s OK being us and making our own choices

because we have arrived someplace

and have realized in the end

all the turns we’ve made were actually

chosen and decided by us alone.
