The road runs long between should and will
Its distance measured in time to fill.
A lazy ride to enhance my procrastination
Waiting seems to be my inclination.
Roads’ future possibilities opening wide
As I proceed along my ride.
bumps jostling thoughts as I veer,
intermingling with my fears.
Where is the smooth road to accomplishment?
Isn’t that what this road meant?
Potential lies ahead for could
if only I just would!
