Newfound Routes

Published by Pasithea Chan on

Author’s Notes:
This piece was inspired by the quote: “I am neither impressed by your abilities, nor distressed by your disabilities, but I am very interested in your possibilities”. Newfound routes are trails taken by those unafraid to fail or lose. Those queue in the doers’ line that is seldom populated by more than ten people a day. So if you’re reading this, and want different results; then start doing things differently. Let your work speak for itself and that’s how you author the story or life you’ve always wanted.

I finally found my way
out of this maze.
At first I thought it was a tunnel
but then I realized
I was never underground.
I looked beneath my feet.
And there it was;
a camouflaged rail
hiding beneath a green veil.

But I was too frail
to try again and fail.
So I walked by
my chance to avail
the right to write my tale.

Life is a tale
with voice for a vale.
Lose it and you will tail
those who curtail
all you could vail.

So if you find your way
get over your daze.
Let your heart funnel
the fears that jeopardize
your chances of being found.

Choice is a railway
leading out of a maze
through a green tunnel
designed to phase
souls via newfound routes.

This is for everbody who wants to have a change. And by doing things that it is not on our comfort zone is the first step. This made us feel better to embrace change in order to grow more.

A good piece for those people who are afraid getting out from their comfort zone. Don’t be afraid to try all things that you never knew you could do 🙂

Making your own choice for the path you wanted is not easy. You need to go out of your comfort zone.
