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..
