You may have a smooth sailing for a while
With the spring in your step, you may go an extra mile
But sooner or later a roadblock you would find
Tangible or figurative, crystal clear or ill-defined
That suddenly slams the brakes on your high speed
Something that had seemed unlikely indeed..
When faced with a roadblock you could fight it tooth and nail
Push past it tenaciously, you could succeed or you could fail
Should you then turn around, give up or find another way
Or should you wait patiently for the storm to pass away..
You are a go-getter, doing nothing goes against
The very fabric of you, increases your angst
But sometimes on every other door you may knock
To find it closed- stuck between a hard place and a rock
You are forced to sit back and passively wait
Hope and pray fervently for your troubles to abate
Sometimes waiting it out is what you need most
Instead of futile running from pillar to post
Waiting gives you precious time and a perspective new
Smooth sailing hardly creates the best milieu
To think, reflect, plan and contemplate
While a roadblock forces you into this state..
Quiet contemplation new answers does reveal
Slowing down gives you time to rejuvenate and heal
These are notes to myself as much as you
Faced with a roadblock I would try to wait too..
