It’s your path, and it will bruise!

Paths that are well-travelled
Are probably easy on the mind, unbaffled
Roads, which are straight and clear
Are possibly easy on the eyes and ear

Feet encroaching onto a previous mark
Left by the more than one frequent traveller
Difficult to move against or across in the dark
In the infinity park
well-known to the occasional scavenger
Of love, happiness and peace
In the same place that others found these

You are not others
Others are not you

Serpentine or straight
Which lane do you choose?
Instruction or bait
Which way do you schmooze?

Whatever you do mate
Change will bruise
Dark, Purple and blues
