Every journey hits a kink
That makes us have to stop and think.
While it may deal a heavy blow,
Imagine if this wasn’t so.
Every path should force a pause;
Consideration of our cause.
What if this isn’t my true way?
What if my goal’s a mere delay?
What if there may be more for me
That this detour can help me see?
What are my true motivations?
Have they skewed my navigations?
Without questions, I do fear
Too many folks would simply veer
In whatever manner came to mind,
Only to disaster find.
So give some thanks for subtle blocks
That make us pause and then take stock.
It might just be the planted seed
That bears exactly what you need.
