Road to Hope

The image shows a wrought iron gate with the words “the way” written on it. There’s a path beyond the closed gate leading into a tree-lined lane.

Is this the road I should be on
the path I ought to follow?
I feel as if I’ve lost my way
caught up in toil and trouble.

I’m looking for a brighter path,
one filled with joy, not sorrow.
I place my hand upon the gate
but still my heart is hollow.

So many years meandering
I’ve drifted week to week,
but maybe if I enter here
I’ll find the place I seek.

  1. Really nice, Chris, but my Piscean side is pointing out something… the grass on the other side may be greener… 🤔 but finding hope is a lot better than constantly searching for it!

  2. Your verse reminds me of a huge metal gate that once belonged to a private home but is now in Central Park NYC, NY. I don’t remember who the gate belonged to. But it is more massive than ‘The Way’ ~
