Uneven Terrain

Uneven Terrain

The road is uneven
hindering progress
Slowing my stride 
I tread carefully
not to slip
Concentrating 
on each thought
and decisions made 
What had brought
Me here?
Again
A lesson to be learned
What did I miss?
Always on this path
Going somewhere,
nowhere
Bent out of shape
from missteps
and life’s callous
punishments
I fear I will
always walk
with a limp

    The path spirals, but sometimes we walk in circles, missing the turn.

      Thanks Regina. I’m not sure as the host of the challenge usually provides the photos. Probably somewhere in the UK

    I fear I will
    always walk
    with a limp!
