Dancing Through Life

By: Susan Bolenbaugh

It’s not an easy way,
this place called life.
Which pathway 
shall I choose?
So much distracts me.
I’ve veered a bit
from time to time.
There it is . . .
over there.
now I’ll try.
one more time.

Which pathway is mine?
I choose the one of joy.
For it is full of laughter
and good cheer.
I can, at least,
bring IT to others,
see a smile upon 
a downcast face.
