Roads & Fences

Roads & Fences

Life is a series of roads and fences

the roads we chose can take us to new places

and they can take us home

They can lead us to new experiences

and bring back memories

They can guide us to a new friend or lover

and yet be a lonely desolate place

Fences can hold us in

and keep us out

They provide protection for those we love

and discourage those we’ve yet to meet

They can be beautiful works of art

or ugly reminders of pain and evil

There are many roads and fences between us

miles and miles of concrete, stone and mud

section after section of chain link, split rail and fieldstone

But sometimes

for some souls

Roads are more than a path

fences are not just a barrier

Because for me

All roads lead to you

and fences are simply a place to rest along the way

  1. I got the inspiration to do a similar post just yesterday, sitting on an airplane. There must be something in the karmic universe. This is such a nice sentiment Mr. Not. I will read it many times and try to live by it. Although discouraging those we’ve yet to meet is not always a good thing. I am unbelievably happy that someone I’d not met, got past my fence recently. Sometimes those fences need to be low enough that a determined person can jump over them.
