On the Right Path

How do we know we are on the right path?

Sometimes the right path has many twists and turns.

It isn’t always smooth. It has puddles to jump,

Potholes to avoid, and

Fallen branches to move. What seemed like the right path in one season

Is a dead end in another.

When you are on the right path,

It doesn’t seem like the right path throughout the trip.

But if the traveler keeps his eyes on the guide star

(but checks to see that the foot doesn’t stumble),

He will arrive at a destination

Where Nobody has to say that he was on the right path.

And if someone asks for directions, beware.

Your right path isn’t necessarily theirs.

But both of you will know wben you have reached your destination,.

Following the same star along different paths. Notice that I speak of “he” and “him?”

My wife will tell you that men hate to ask for directions,

But I do follow my star,

And know that I am on the right path.
