Title Quote: Ram Dass
It’s a well-known way to view life
As a ‘Path’ we all must take
The Path can be rough or smooth
Depending on the choices we make
We can travel on our track alone
Or with close and trusted friends
There presence gives us support
As we navigate the dips and bends
Varied loved ones will accompany us
Along the majority of our life path
The love we share gives us direction
The joy, lightens our way as we laugh
But where does this pathway begin?
And where does it go to, and end?
Or is it a vast circular Highway
We want to know, to comprehend
I believe the two points are the same
From Source we arrive at our birth
Wandering along to find our own route
The reason we decided to come to Earth
Experiencing the joys and the beauty
Giving unconditional love to one-and-all
Discovering our unique gift to share
Is the true path we all came here for
Sharing our love and our gifts
With any who join us on our roam
Enlightenment comes to let us know
We Are Just Walking Each Other Home

About This Poem
When I am out taking nature photographs one theme I am always on the lookout for are pathways, as I know many quotes (and my poems) use the expression of life as a path we all follow. Wooded footpaths and beach footpaths are my favourites to photograph and use. When out for walks with others I will purposely lag behind so that I can get a shots of people usually in the distance of a footpath as I think they make excellent pictures for quotes.
When I sat to write the poem for this quote I thought it would be a sympathy poem, but when the words began to flow it was obviously going to be about the path of life.
