The Key

What views do you hold,
Which paths do you follow,
Are you buffered by love,
Or broken and hollow?

Do you blow with the wind,
Stand where you will,
Are you true to yourself,
Or resentful and ill?

You alone have the power,
To choose what’s right,
Make passion your muse,
Watch spirit take flight.

55 Flash Fiction Friday: Compose a story in 55 words and report back
to the G-Man at …every Friday.

Great 55 - have to stop and think. Good message too, we don't have to let life carry us away, we can make choices that count.

This had perfect flow. It is easier to let life blow us away. While it may be hard, the difficulty of following your passion is well worth it!
