The Roll Call topic was won by Cathy Thorp
Bent Forks *
When you come to the fork in the road, take it.
Not just to eat dessert first, but seek hunger to discern desire.
Then in the defiance of chaos we know
The outbound flow, the temper tempted.
Journeys began, continued, yet we never arrive
Where we planned on the roadmap we saw in our minds.
Are destined to follow old trails overrun
With thick thorns of regret we cannot forget?
Faith leads us on the road yet unseen
Unprepared, yet unwilling to remain in our pain
Move on in the light of a brighter sun
Where self-imposed blocks no longer remain.
Take the fork in the road, and go, travel far
Every turn we’ve made brings us to where we are.
