Life Stopped.

Sometimes in life

There is a solid wall before you,

It is stopping you moving on.

That wall may be in front of you

But all you need to do is look back,

And go out through the open door

From where you entered,

And walk on another path

To where your life moves forward.

        The SHADOWS ~ A Classic Instrumental Rock Ensemble ~ oft imitated but never ever excelled ! Apache was one of their most haunting compilations. I use their version of Chariots of Fire in my Dessert Islands Discs presentation (8 records to cover a mere 35 years !) ~ Love the Poem ~ my experience in all Aspects of Life there is always an alternative ~ sometimes "The Road ~ less taken !" Thanks ANDY for caring & sharing ~ Yours BRIAN ! Please check my FLOWERS !

          The open road is always there.

          A fine write Gold. Are there any doors in the wall itself?

        • Laura🌻

          Such an inspirational write!
          The message is clear...
          there’s always a way out!
          My husband and I have tried to instill that in our children...and we continue on that path!
          I enjoyed the video! I liked when he stepped on that cigarette and kicked away!


          • Goldfinch60

            Thank you Laura, it is a great way to think.

            Back in those times it was the norm as everybody smoked, including me and all my mates.

            • Laura🌻

              It was cool!
              We, ladies...
              loved it!

              So very true, it was to rid myself of the belief that turning back ment I was not good enough but now I see it was the wrong path, just wait for a sign to let you know so I'll thank you kindly for your post 😉

              • Goldfinch60

                Thank you Dan, we all take the wrong path sometimes but we need the confidence to tyrn back and find a different path. There are many in our lives but we should be sure in the knowledge that we WILL get the right one in the end.

                When one door closes a million other will open. Amazing piece.
