#Maydays Prompt – Paths


Today’s #maydays prompt features the word “Path”.

The path to Nowhere was a rugged one

All down hill with so many obstacles

Treacherous declines, rocky outcrops

Times when danger loomed large

Life and death events.

Though when you reach Nowhere

It is in fact Somewhere.

All around the horizon

As far as the eye can see

Is evidence of life.

Far to my right was the city

Thriving in his magnificence

Sucking life and giving back

In its own unique way.

To my left is and a vast wasteland

The place lost souls inhabit

Seeking and craving love.

They wander aimlessly

Forever lost in Nowhere

Never realising they are Somewhere.

    this is a fascinating play with these ideas – somewhere and nowhere – and always searching, seeking, ….. the tone is set well – there is something about this …. rather …. quietly haunting

    I appreciate this viewpoint. “No where” is still “Somewhere” and that’s vital. Sometimes you don’t realize you’ve ended up somewhere good, maybe even where you belong. You call it nowhere but in reality, it’s somewhere good if you choose to see it that way. Well done Michael. It’s a neat perspective on paths.
